Next Conversation in SSHRC’s public talks series to look at historical injustices against Japanese Canadians

April 11, 2023

Tune in later this month for the next public talk in our series In Conversation With, organized in collaboration with The Conversation Canada.

This month we feature Jordan Stanger-Ross, a professor in the Department of History at the University of Victoria, and winner of SSHRC’s 2022 Connection Award, for his contributions to the SSHRC Partnership Grants project Landscapes of Injustice. His research focuses on migration, race and inequality in the 20th century, especially in North America.

Stanger-Ross will be joined by Audrey Kobayashi, professor emerita in the Department of Geography and Planning at Queen’s University. Kobayashi was a collaborator on the Landscapes of Injustice project and is now co-director with Stanger-Ross of a new seven-year (2022-29), community-engaged SSHRC Partnership Grants project, Past Wrong, Future Choices, which will look at the history of the internment, incarceration and dispossession of people of Japanese descent in Australia, Brazil, Canada and the United States in the 1940s.

Join Stanger-Ross and Kobayashi for an online discussion, Why keep telling a history of racism? New perspectives on the dispossession of Japanese Canadians, on April 18, 2023, at 2 p.m. (eastern). The session will be in English, with simultaneous interpretation in French. Closed captioning will be available in both languages. A question and answer period will follow. You can register here.
