Japanese Americans Theme of Day of Remembrance Lecture at Creighton

Greg Robinson, PhD., will discuss his award-winning book A Tragedy of Democracy: Japanese Confinement in North America during a presentation titled “Day of Remembrance” at 7 p.m., March 1, in the Harper Center Ahmanson Ballroom.

Robinson is a professor of history at the Uníversíte du Quebec à Montreal. His book, which focuses on the history of the wartime confinement of people of Japanese ancestry, presents newly uncovered material on the camp experiences of West Coast Japanese Americans. His book will be on sale in the Creighton Bookstore prior to the event, and he will have a book-signing table after the lecture.

The event is sponsored by the American Studies Program, the Department of History, the Justice and Peace Studies Program, the Kenefick Chair in the Humanities, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Non-Western Studies Grant program, the World Literature Program, the University Committee on Lecutres, Film and Concerts, and the Japanese American Citizens League—Omaha Chapter.
