English Room, Kansas Union
Q&A with Linda Steigerwald & Louise Lake (daughters of Japanese war brides)
About the Film
WWII Japanese war brides share their stories of struggle and triumph. Arriving in the US alongside husbands who were their former enemies, they experienced being disowned by their Japanese families and rejection by their American in-laws.
About the Series
The movie series is part this year’s migration program funded by our Title VI grant. Under the conceptual umbrella of “Global Asia,” which seeks to address diverse perspectives on pressing national and international issues, the program will address diverse migration-related issues and concerns through educational activities such as a movie series, workshops, and a spring conference.
Sponsored by the KU Center for East Asian Studies, Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging and the Departments of Art History, Film & Media Studies, Curriculum & Teaching, and American Studies.
