Augie Reads 2021: When the Emperor Was Divine

High-quality resources for students and faculty related to the 2021 Augie Reads book.

This section collects resources for faculty teaching FYI 101 or FYH 101 in the fall of 2020. Navigate the menu on the left to find:

  • free online course from Densho about teaching Japanese American incarceration effectively. It should be particularly helpful for those of us who have not studied the topic in depth
  • A StoryMap from Augustana's Special Collections, following the journey of a Japanese American Augustana student who was incarcerated in a concentration camp during WWII
  • Selected additional resources, including:
    • George Takei's graphic novel, They Called Us Enemy, and related resources 
    • Articles about Japanese American incarceration and the language we use to speak of it
    • Lnks to relevant organizations, including collections of educator resources

If there are resources you'd recommend adding to this page, please contact Stefanie Bluemle (library instruction coordinator) or Farah Marklevits (FYI coordinator).

Tredway Library extends a special thank you to Liza Lawrence (History) and Emma Saito Lincoln (formerly Special Collections) for their extensive contributions to the resources listed in this Augie Reads guide.
