Title:The War Crimes Documentation Initiative (WCDI) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
Date Issued:28 Apr 2021
Abstract:The War Crimes Documentation Initiative (WCDI) is a digital humanities laboratory led by a
team of historians, librarians, and GIS specialists at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa since the
spring of 2019. WCDI seeks to experiment, develop, and make available to a broad audience
innovative digital resources that help promote the teaching and research of World War II-era war
crimes committed by the Japanese in the Asia-Pacific region (1931-1945). WCDI uses
geographic information systems (GIS) and graph analysis to document, across space and time,
the nexus between Japanese military operations, government and military power structures, and
the patterns of war crimes. WCDI’s objective is to make available to students and scholars
across the globe digital tools that empower users to discover, analyze, and assess the
Japanese conduct of war and military occupation, and find answers to a number of questions on
accountability that remain unresolved to this day. In this seminar, the WCDI team introduces its
digital resources to the UH CJS community.
