Asian American/Pacific Islander Studies

  • The Densho website - Densho's mission is to preserve the testimonies of Japanese Americans who were unjustly incarcerated during World War II before their memories are extinguished.
  • Densho Encyclopedia - A free on-line resource about the history of the Japanese American WWII exclusion and incarceration experience.
  • Portland’s Japantown Revealed - This book uses photographs, video interviews, and rarely seen historic artifacts to tell the story of a vibrant Japanese American community in Portland Oregon that disappeared with the forced removal and incarceration of its citizens. While the focus is on one American community, the book illustrates a great injustice in American history rooted in race prejudice and WWII hysteria.
