The History Department is sponsoring an exciting documentary film screening and filmmaker discussion next week that I hope you consider attending.
The film Shusenjo: The Main Battleground of the Comfort Women Issue examines the narratives surrounding the contentious issue of "comfort women," the sexual enslavement of Korean women during WWII. Director Miki Dezaki will participate in a discussion after the screening of the film. For more on the film and the controversy it has set off, see this New York Times article.

|Christina Elizabeth Firpo, The Uprooted: Race, Children, and Imperialism in French Indochina, 1890-1980. Honolulu: University of Hawai’i Press, 2016.
The Uprooted tells the forgotten tale of a ‘stolen’ generation: the fatherless métis children born in French Indochina. Uprooted from their Southeast Asian mothers, these children were placed in government-run orphanages and educational institutions as part of a colonial policy devised to disconnect them from their maternal indigenous roots. Rich in archival detail, this thoroughly researched book offers a brilliant and thus far neglected instance of child removal and the associated colonial and post-colonial discourse of race and gender.
