About the Speaker:

Professor of American History, Gordon H. Chang's research focuses on the history of United States-East Asia relations and on Asian American history. He is affiliated with the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity, the American Studies Program, International Relations Program, and is Director of the Center for East Asian Studies. He is particularly interested in America in the world, the historical connections between race and ethnicity in America and foreign relations, and explores these interconnections in his teaching and scholarship. He is a recipient of both Guggenheim and ACLS fellowships, and has been a three-time fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center.

Chang is the editor or author of a number of essays and books, including American Asian Art: A History, 1850 - 1970, Chinese American Voices: From the Gold Rush to the Present (2006), Asian Americans and Politics: An Exploration (2001), Morning Glory, Evening Shadow: Yamato Ichihashi and His Wartime Writing, 1942-1945 (1997), and Friends and Enemies: The United States, China, and the Soviet Union, 1948-1972 (1990). Chinese American Voices is a collaboration with two other historians and presents the words of Chinese Americans from the mid-19th century to the recent past. Many of the personal narratives included in the book appear in print for the first time and offer unique insights into Chinese American experiences. He also helped complete a collection of the last work of Yuji Ichioka, the pioneer historian of Japanese Americans who died a few years ago.

His MA and PhD is from Stanford and his AB is from Princeton.
