"Gateway to the Orient: Seattle's Nikkei and West Coast Urban History" talk by Dr. Shelley Lee

Thu, March 27, 2014 | GAR 4.100

12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Through the case of Japanese Americans in Seattle, Washington before World War II, this talk explores the significance of U.S. Pacific expansion and Japanese migration for West Coast urban development and how, in turn, the Pacific port's pursuit of status as a "gateway to the Orient" shaped the lives of its Asian residents.
