Project: ヒステリー [Hysteria]

This project is about the mass hysteria following the Pearl Harbour Attack, and how it impacted on people with Japanese ancestry, after Executive Order 9066 was signed by President Roosevelt. Over 120,000 people were sent to 10 internment camps across the United States, and MAKIKO recently discovered that her great, great uncle was one of them. 

The work is mainly focused on what happened in the Tule Lake camp, the first camp in which he was interned. The research takes in archive materials, interviews and visits, as well as considering the internees’ strengths based on solidarity, and how they thrived between 1942 - 1945 and into the post-war period.
