One of the darkest chapters in modern American history is the WWII-era Japanese Internment camps. This lecture examines the historical background of this period—the government’s role, the war era, and the plight of the victims. The lecture includes examples of art, craft, and cultural production made in and about the experience. Attendees will gain an understanding of this traumatic episode in our history––one that concerned America’s treatment of immigrants in a time of global conflict––through objects that show great humanity and even creative heroism. The lecture is led by Mark Pohlad, PhD, Associate Professor of Art History at DePaul University.
