UWT Scholarly Selections—Never Again is Now: Japanese Internment, Anti-Asian Violence and Immigration Detention in the 21st Century
May 20, 7:00 PM
FREE Facebook Live Presentation

Join us for a panel discussion about the history and meaning of U.S. government surveillance of Japanese Americans and World War II incarceration, in relationship to contemporary issues of anti-Asian violence, immigration and labor, private detention centers, and border patrol. Informed by history, we will address relevant questions about democracy and civil liberties, neoliberal policies, citizenship, and American identity. Panelists will also consider the possibilities of solidarity between social justice movements for freedom and equality, including Black Lives Matter.

Moderator: UWT Student Leader and Faculty Member, Tanya Velasquez

About Scholarly Selections:
A partnership between the UW Tacoma School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences and the Washington State History Museum, Scholarly Selections brings UWT scholars’ work to the public in an informal setting. Scholarly Selections talks are normally held at the History Museum on Third Thursday evenings with free admission, however the May 20 Scholarly Selections will be held virtually.
