About Ayanna Yonemura

For more than two decades, scholar and professor Ayanna Yonemura, Ph.D., has been immersed in a number of academic pursuits, with notable work in the fields of ethnic studies, urban planning, and U.S. history. Based in Los Angeles, California, Dr. Yonemura is currently working on a book—Assimilating Places: The Resettlement of Japanese Americans—the result of her years of study into  the U.S. internment camps of World War II and urban planning history.


Prior to this endeavor, Ayanna Yonemura, Ph.D., spent four years as a faculty member at Santa Barbara City College, where she taught courses in U.S. History, Asian-American Studies, and African-American Studies. Previously, Yonemura lectured on Asian-American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, and in the Urban Planning Master of Arts Program at the University of Southern California where she taught  “The Social Context of Planning” wand an applied case study on Little Tokyo, Los Angeles.

A two-time Fulbright Scholar, Ayanna Yonemura, Ph.D., completed her second fellowship in 2005 at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University Frankfurt, where she served as a Visiting Professor of Anthropology and taught two courses: “Social Spaces in Ethnography, Biography and Fiction,” and “The Politics of Fieldwork.” A former Assistant Professor of Urban Studies and Sociology at Loyola Marymount University and Assistant Professor of Urban Studies and Planning and Asian American Studies at California State University, Northridge, Ayanna Yonemura, Ph.D., entered into these roles at the end of her first Fulbright Fellowship in Eritrea.


Other positions include Adjunct Instructor of U.S. History at Pasadena City College, Instructor for the Upward Bound Program Summer Session at Long Beach City College, and Teaching Assistant at UCLA, the latter performed while completing her Ph.D. in Urban Planning. A recipient of the 1998 U.S. Government Civil Liberties Public Education Fund National Fellowship, Ayanna Yonemura, Ph.D., earned her Master of Arts in African Studies from UCLA and Bachelor of Arts in German Studies (honors) from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
