Dr. Edward Tang attends Yale University symposium on Japanese American and Japanese Brazilian art and literature.

Dr. Edward Tang was invited to participate in the symposium “Japanese American, Japanese Brazilian: The Art and Literature of Transnational Belonging,” hosted by Yale University’s Council on East Asian Studies on Feb. 21-22, 2020. The symposium gathered scholars, museum curators, and artists from the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Japan to discuss mid-century cultural forms and exhibits created by artists and writers of Japanese ancestry living in North and South America. Dr. Tang presented a paper, “Migrations and Mass Imprisonment in the Art of Henry Sugimoto,” based on a chapter from his recent book From Confinement to Containment: Japanese/American Arts during the Early Cold War.
