Asian American Women: Historical Contexts & Issues

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

While you don't have a lot of time to make this - because it's tomorrow night - if you're in the area it sounds like it should be a cool (and see educational) evening with Gail Nomura:

The free event, “Asian American Women: Historical Contexts & Issues,” will take place at 7 p.m. in the Parker Room of the Deccio Higher Education Center at Yakima Valley Community College, 1000 S. 12th Ave.

Gail Nomura, whose research documents Japanese American women in the Yakima Valley, will speak. Her publications and research include “Local Japanese on the Yakama Indian Reservation 1906-1942,” “Nikkei in the Pacific Northwest: Japanese Americans and Japanese Canadians in the Twentieth Century,” and “Asian/Pacific Islander American Women, a Historical Anthology.”

She is a past president of the Association for Asian American Studies and past board member of the Nikkei Heritage Association of Washington/Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Washington.
