For today’s podcast, I spoke to Connie Chiang, Professor of History and Environmental Studies at Bowdoin College, about her 2018 book Nature Behind Barbed Wire: An Environmental History of the Japanese American Incarceration. Among the topics we spoke about was why the term “internment camp” is inappropriate for these camps, what looking at human interactions with the environment can do to expand our knowledge of this and other events, the complexity of the relationship between camp guards and the imprisoned, how the imprisoned dealt with the hot and arid conditions of the camps, and what lessons we should take in dealing with yet another round of anti-Asian sentiment in the United States.
