Faculty Spotlight: SOU’s Precious Yamaguchi on family, books, fashion, positivity
April 25, 2023
Precious Yamaguchi, an associate professor in the Southern Oregon University Communication Department, discusses her family ties to Los Angeles, her sideline as a small business owner and her first book: “Experiences of Japanese American Women During and After World War II: Living in Internment Camps and Rebuilding Life Afterwards.”
She also discusses her background in fashion and textiles – which she has taught in the past – and “writing about the good things that have happened” on social media. “That’s kind of the way I create my mindset going forward,” she says.
Yamaguchi is interviewed in a fourth installment (and second of the second season) of “Faculty Spotlight,” an SOU News podcast series in which the student multi-media reporter in SOU’s Communications Office shines a light on SOU faculty members who make an impact on students and the campus community. This year’s multi-media reporter is communications major Angelina Caldera.
Listeners can find and subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other platforms.
