Transnational Japanese Diaspora: Preserving the Brazilian Nikkei Literary and Cultural Heritage

The digitization, preservation, and public access of the leading pre-WWII Japanese language immigrant newspaper, the Burajiru Jiho, published in São Paulo, Brazil.

Much of the scholarship to date on Japanese Brazilian Nikkei, and other Nikkei communities in the Americas, has been primarily concentrated in the social sciences. By making application to NEH, this project seeks to develop and nurture research into the transnational Japanese diaspora from the multifaceted perspectives of the humanities. This proposal calls for the preservation and digitization of the Burajiru Jiho newspaper is coupled with a virtually based, international symposium designed to introduce the latest research on Japanese Brazilian literature in both Japanese and Portuguese languages. In so doing we seek to capture the narratives that have defined 112 years of history and cultural heritage between Japan and Brazil from 1908 to the present day.
