SSHRC funding announced for Landscapes of Injustice research project

The Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives is pleased to announce our affiliation with the Landscapes of Injustice – a seven-year, multi-partner research project exploring the forced dispossession of Japanese Canadians during the Second World War.

Housed at CAPI, the Landscapes of Injustice project is led by researchers at UVic with13 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.
