Educator and author, Meredith Oda, Ph.D. discusses her new book The Gateway to the Pacific: Japanese Americans and the Remaking of San Francisco.

The Gateway to the Pacific, published by University of Chicago Press, 2018, traces the development of San Francisco's postwar transpacific urbanity - the metropolis' urban life - in order to tell the story of the city's relations with and ideas about Japan in the decades following the Pacific War. It also argues that those were made within and remade the intimate, local sites of home, neighborhood, civic life, and identity.

Meredith Oda is associate professor of history at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Books available for purchase after the event.
