Japanese doctors in Australia before and during the period of the Immigration Restriction Act

Project: HDR ProjectPhD

Project Details


In the era of White Australia, a small number of Japanese doctors were permitted to practice in Australia. What brought these men to the country, what do we know of their experiences, and what were the factors that most influenced official and social acceptance of, or resistance to, their presence? What role did perceived needs, fears, vested interests and personal connections at the local, national and international levels play in their reception, and what might their stories tell us of the wider history of Japanese-Australian relations and Australian practices of racial exclusion? Such matters are the core of John's research
