Landscapes of Injustice

Landscapes of Injustice

Housed at CAPI, the Landscapes of Injustice project is a seven-year, multi-partner research project exploring the forced dispossession of Japanese Canadians during the Second World War.

Led by researchers at UVic with 13 partner institutions, the project has received a $2.5 million partnership grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and partnering institutions have committed an additional $3 million.

Landscapes of Injustice will develop education materials, publications, public events and culminate in a cross-country tour of a new interactive museum exhibit beginning in 2019.

Recently, project director Dr. Jordan Stanger-Ross, associate professor in the department of history, was interviewed by Gregor Craigie on CBC Radio Victoria's On the Island. Jordon provided an update on the early findings – in particular about three key people behind the policies of forced sale of Japanese-Canadian-owned property during the Second World War.
