Gordon H. Chang
Senior Associate Vice Provost for Under Graduate Education and the Olive H. Palmer Professor in Humanities
I am interested in several different areas of history, including the historical connections between race and ethnicity in America, on the one hand, and foreign relations, on the other, and trans-Pacific relations in their diplomatic as well as their cultural and social dimensions. I have written and continue to publish in the areas of U.S. diplomacy, America-China relations, the Chinese diaspora, Asian American history, and global history. My most recent books have examined the history of Chinese railroad workers in America in the 19th century.
I continue to work with undergraduates, master’s students, and doctoral students.
