Description

During the middle decades of the 20th century, the popular image of Japanese Americans transformed from one of a savage and enemy race marked for exclusion into a model of acceptance and assimilation. By referencing this dramatic shift in dominant discourse, this presentation will examine the relationship between racial ideology and constructions of citizenship and national identity in American history. It will conclude with some thoughts about how Japanese American history can inform an analysis of the immigration debates and “culture wars” currently raging within the U.S.
