"The Enemy Within?  Japanese-American Internment and its Legacy"

**Note that this program will be held in the Great Hall at Wolfeboro Town Hall


While President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's 1942  Executive Order 9066 regarding relocation of Japanese-Americans failed to outlast World War II, the foundation for it began long before the conflict, and the legacies have continued to the present day.  What were the historical and legal factors inspiring and shaping the relocation policy?  How have they had an impact on its post-war ramifications?

Molly Dorsey is an associate professor of History and a core faculty member in Justice Studies at the University of New Hampshire. She earned her BA at Stanford in History and Human Biology, a JD at Harvard, and a PhD in History at Yale. Her book A Strange and Formidable Weapon: British Responses to World War I Poison Gas is published under the name Marion Dorsey.
