Second International Workshop on Japanese Diaspora

The Hoover Institution Library & Archives at Stanford University and the Japanese Association for Migration Studies co-host the Second International Workshop on Japanese Diaspora. In-person presentations will be held onsite (unless otherwise noted) and will be made available via webinar for registered attendees. The webinar begins at 10:15 am. 

The workshop, supported by the endowed Japanese Diaspora Initiative at Hoover, encourages rising young scholars to present their new research on Japanese global migration. An international roster of junior scholars, post-docs, and graduate students in modern Japanese history and Japanese American studies will come to the Hoover Institution Library & Archives, which holds a vast collection of Japanese and Japanese American archival materials, to discuss the Japanese diaspora from a global perspective. This workshop allows scholars to consider the history of Japanese migrant workers and immigrants as complex non-binominal interactive processes among the homeland and multiple host countries. 

This event also includes a lecture on Thursday, November 3rd, which will be open to the public. Attendees must be registered to participate online or in-person (seats are limited).  Registration to the public lecture is separate from the full-day workshop.
