On June 9-10 we held a small project meeting for the Executive Committee as well as team members who are employing students this summer. The overarching theme of the meeting was project integration. Our project has great opportunity to bring a variety of research techniques into conversation, and the meetings demonstrated this potential. The cluster chairs have ambitious plans and are in position to set them in motion this summer along with the outstanding group of students who have been hired into research positions. By next spring we will be able to report and receive feedback on these very early efforts.
The Landscapes of Injustice team had a chance to experience some living history in Chemainus, BC. Not only did the Chemainus Valley Museum open up its rich archives collection, but members of the project had the opportunity to explore a landscape of colourful murals dotting the town centre, depicting historic aspects of the town’s Japanese Canadian community.
