Hapa Japan Festival 2017 Los Angeles

Forwarded for USC Shinso Ito Center for Japanese Religions and Culture

The Hapa Japan Festival celebrates mixed-race and mixed-roots Japanese people and culture.

Come join us at the Japanese American National Museum and the USC campus for film screenings documenting the story of mixed race Japanese people, rich conversations with Hapa cultural icons, jam sessions, and a gastronomic experience to remember.

Please also join us as we hear from leading thinkers of Hapa Japan (and critical mixed race) scholarship at the 3-day Critical Mixed Race Studies (CMRS) Conference which will be held in conjunction with the festival. This year’s conference explores issues in trans (gender, gressions, migrations, racial).
