Book Talk with Jane Yamashiro @ Pacific University – April 12th
Join JET Alum Jane Yamashiro (CIR, Nagano-ken, 1995 – 1998) for a discussion about Japanese American experiences living in Japan!
Redefining Japaneseness chronicles how Japanese American migrants to Japan experience both racial inclusion and cultural dislocation while negotiating between the categories of Japanese and “foreigner.” Drawing from extensive observations and interviews with Japanese Americans who are geographically, culturally, and linguistically diverse, Jane H. Yamashiro reveals wide variations in how Japanese Americans perceive both Japaneseness and Americanness. Her findings have major implications for both Asian American studies and scholarship on transnational migration and global diasporic identity.
When: Wednesday, April 12th
Where: Pacific University, McGill Auditorium (Murdock Hall)
Time: 4:00 – 6:00pm
