Antiracist Pedagogy in Modern Japanese Studies (1900-present)

We invite papers exploring antiracist pedagogies in modern (1900 to the present) Japanese Studies classrooms, program curricula, and campus/disciplinary outreach. In particular, we seek presentations that are intersectional in approach, taking into consideration relations between race and class, gender, sexuality, citizenship, indigeneity, and/or ability. We welcome applicants from any background and encourage applications from junior faculty, independent scholars, and late-stage graduate students whose work is directly engaged in antiracist pedagogies and social justice initiatives.

Please send a 300-word abstract and a short bio to both Andrea Mendoza (UCSD) and Colleen Laird (UBC)
