James C. Curtis, professor emeritus of history, will speak about his book Discriminating Views: Documentary Photography and Japanese American Internment at 5PM, Thursday, November 10, in 122 Memorial Hall on the University of Delaware’s Newark campus.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Asian Studies Program and the Department of History.
Discriminating Views focuses on photographers hired by the U.S. War Relocation Authority during World War II. It shows how their images were shaped by the government’s need to explain and justify the evacuation, confinement and eventual resettlement of more than 110,000 Japanese Americans during the war.
