Landscapes of Injustice - The Uprooting, Internment and Dispossession of Japanese Canadians

In this workshop we will explore a new resource for the teaching of Japanese Canadian history with a particluar emphasis on the Internment Era (1939-1952). The Landscapes of Injsutice project has created multiple websites dedicated to uncovering and teaching about the uprooting, internment, dipossession and deportation of Japanese Canadians during the 1940s. We will explore the teaching resources, lessons, activites, narrative timeline and rich archival sources found on the Secondary Teacher Resources website.
