Call for Nominations, "Landscapes of Injustice"

The University of Victoria History department in partnership with 13 institutions and over 20 co-investigators and collaborators has embarked on a seven year research project called Landscapes of Injustice. This project will further investigate the dispossession and forced sale of property owned by Japanese Canadians during the 1940's and will develop a travelling museum exhibit, an educational website and digital archive of research materials and curricula for the elementary and secondary school system.

To ensure that the project remains accountable to the concerns and interests of the wider Japanese Canadian community the Landscapes of Injustice team is seeking nominations from the JC community to be involved in the formation of a Community Council.

Further details about the Community Council are contained in the attachment and information about the project can be found on the website www.landscapesofinjustice.com. We would like to encourage you to nominate yourself or someone who they think would be an excellent candidate for this role.

If you have any questions, please direct them to Jordan Stanger-Ross, Project Director at jstross@uvic.ca or Jeffrey Masuda at jeff.masuda@queensu.ca. Nominations are to be submitted to NominationsLandscapes@gmail.com on or before October 2, 2014 . Thank you in advance for your attention to this.
