For her fellowship project, Kelsey used a multimedia approach to imagine the future Japanese American Community. The storytelling is inventive and brings to life the ideas of Japanese American identity, personal memory, social community and digital technologies. We hope you read more!
Founder of The Untold Narratives
TUN Fellow: Kelsey Ichikawa
For this project, I started with this question: decades from now, what will the Japanese American community be like? Living in the wake of World War II internment, assimilation, geographic displacement, the model minority myth, and cultural dispersal, what do we hope for, and what do we fear? I think this is where speculative fiction can provide openings for our collective future-making. My goal was to imagine an archive of the future, to create pieces of our future history. During this 6-month fellowship, I’ve created a variety of mediums for this collection, including excerpts from an academic paper, a business pitch, interview transcripts, poetry, and journal entries to explore interactions between Japanese American identity, political and personal memory, social community and mutual aid, and digital technologies.
