Jessica A. Fernández de Lara Harada is the 2023-2026 Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Contemporary History and Public Policy of Mexico in the Faculty of History and the Latin American Centre, and an Associate Member of St Antony’s College, at the University of Oxford. Currently, Jessica is developing her first monograph, provisionally titled ‘Non-ethics of war: Racism, Dispossession and the Concentration System in the Disappearance of Mexican Japanese’. It is a social history of race, mestizaje and resistance in Mexico that centres the transpacific experiences of Mexicans of Japanese origins during the 19th and 20th centuries to map, analyse and connect ongoing global practices of displacement, dispossession, elimination and accumulation.
