Eugene Day of Remembrance 2008
Saturday, February 23, 2008 at 10:00 a.m.
University of Oregon Law School, Eugene, Oregon

During WWII thousands of persons of Japanese ancestry in the United States, Canada, and various Latin American countries were dispossessed from their homes, and without a charge, trial by judge and jury, or sentence of guilt, were interned or incarcerated for an indeterminate time period. Who were these people? Why did this happen? How did this happen? What happened to these people?

Dr. Tetsuden Kashima will respond to these questions in "WWII Internment and Incarceration: Japanese Ancestry Persons in the United States, Canada, and Latin America." He was born in Oakland, California, and incarcerated at the Topaz WRA Center during WWII. His Ph.D. is from the University of California, San Diego, and he is a Professor, Department of American Ethnic Studies, and Adjunct Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Washington. He has authored Buddhism in America: the Social Organization of an Ethnic Religious Institution (1977) and Judgment Without Trial: Japanese American Imprisonment during World War II (2003).

The presentation--focusing on a largely unknown topic of American history and sociology--is on Saturday, February 23, 2008, 10:00 a.m., Room 175 at the Knight Law Center, University of Oregon Law School, 1515 Agate Street for this free public event. Parking is available in the large parking lot east of the Law School (turn on 17th from Agate; turn left onto Columbia; turn right into parking lot).
