Congratulations to Dr. Jordan Stanger-Ross of the department of history and the Landscapes of Injustice project. Dr. Stanger-Ross won the 2015 CAPI Faculty Research Grant for his research proposal “Deportees and Dispossession: Laying the foundation for a transnational research project”.

This fellowship award will fund travel to Japan to investigate and communicate the experiences of almost 4,000 Japanese Canadians who were deported from Canada in 1946. This research will emphasize the dispossession of property that accompanied the uprooting and deportation of these Canadaian citizens during WWII.
