Aoki Center Presents: “Oyama v. California: A Play” 2/20/2018

Please join Professor Rose Villazor for her presentation: “Oyama v. California: A Play” Oyama v. California, 332 U.S. 633 (1948), is a case that challenged the constitutionality of California’s Alien Land Law. The law prohibited Japanese and other individuals who were not racially eligible to become citizens from owning land. Professors and students will re-enact parts of the trial and dramatize the Supreme Court opinion. The Interdisciplinary Seminar Series You’re cordially invited to join us for the Aoki Center’s Spring 2018 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from, and discuss with, interdisciplinary scholars who will present their research and works in progress which are inspired by, and build upon, critical race studies.
