The Out of the Desert three-day symposium will mark the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which paved the way for the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans.
This symposium will bring together key stakeholders from the Japanese American community, along with academics, public historians, curators, artists, activists, and museum specialists.
Alongside public lectures and roundtable discussion, the symposium will feature workshops related to best practices for historic preservation, digitization, curation and digital interpretive projects. Taking an expansive view of incarceration internment, and confinement, this symposium explores longer genealogies of race and exclusion in America, highlighting their urgent relevance to our contemporary moment.
The symposium is free and open to the public. Details are forthcoming.
