OCT 10: UBC Day of Learning

UBC Day of Learning

Envisioning our future at the 75th Anniversary of Japanese Canadian Internment

On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, UBC will host a Day of Learning to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Japanese Canadian internment and the 5th anniversary of the UBC Honorary Degree Ceremony for the 76 Japanese Canadian students expelled in 1942.

Through a series of panels and workshops, the Day of Learning will explore past and present societal themes of xenophobia, racism and discrimination, from the removal of indigenous peoples, to the incarceration of over 21,000 Japanese Canadians in 1942, and the rise of Islamophobia today. Full schedule of events available here. All events listed are open to UBC alumni, students, staff, faculty, and community members.

Everyone is welcome to register for any event(s), free of charge. Register here.
