Masters student looking to reach Nikkei Canadians for thesis

Guillermina (Mina) Coronado is looking for Japanese Canadians interested in taking part in her masters research. She is a student of the Master in Global Politics & Transpacific Studies at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico. Mina’s area of specialization is Japan and its relationship with Canada within the framework of the Asia-Pacific region.

The thesis is called: “An evolving identity: Nikkei Canadians and their approach to Japanese-ness after WWII. The case of Vancouver.” Her purpose is to look at how the relocation and internment of Japanese and Japanese Canadians during World War II in Canada negatively affected the approach of those communities and their descendants regarding the Japanese side of their identity.
