Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungWhen Japanese Americans were incarcerated by the federal government during World War II, Japanese American field assistants were sent to conduct ethnographic research within the camps. This book examines the experience of Tamie Tsuchiyama, a doctoral student assigned to the Colorado River Relocation Center at Poston, Arizona. Drawing from her personal letters, fieldnotes, reports, and interviews, Lane Hirabayashi reconstructs the daily life, fieldwork methodology, and politics of residents and researchers at the camp and reveals the pressures that led to Tsuchiyama's resignation, in protest, from the project.
PortraitLane Ryo Hirabayashi, an anthropologist, is the George and Sakaye Aratani Professor of the Japanese American Internment, Redress & Community and chair of the Department of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
