Gordon H. Chang is a professor of American History at Stanford University, a renowned author and Director, Center for East Asian Studies. His particular area of focus is trans-Pacific relations, the inter-connections between East Asia and America. He is interested in political, social, and cultural interactions from the earliest days of America to the present. His current research project concerns the recovery and interpretation of the experiences of Chinese railroad workers in North America.
His latest book, Ghosts of Gold Mountain, is being published this Spring, and in this groundbreaking account, Gordon draws on unprecedented research to recover the Chinese railroad workers’ stories and celebrate their role in remaking America. An invaluable correction of a great historical injustice, Ghosts of Gold Mountain returns these “silent spikes” to their rightful place in our national saga. It is a breathtaking history of the Chinese workers who built the Transcontinental Railroad, helping to forge modern America only to disappear into the shadows of history until now.
There will be a question and answer session after the presentation as well as a book signing.
