Senkan no Aki no Tsuki: Interpreting Depictions of the Landscape at WWII Heart Mountain Camp
Author(s): Clara Steussy
This is a paper/report submission presented at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
Creative and artistic works provided an important outlet for the 120,000 Japanese Americans confined during World War II. Many of these works incorporate depictions of the natural world. I will investigate the ways in which these depictions were influenced by the natural environment surrounding the camp established at Heart Mountain, and what those influences can tell us about how the Japanese Americans related to the Wyoming landscape in which they were confined.
