NEW DATE – The Chinese Question: The Gold Rushes and Global Politics — A Conversation with Mae Ngai

Friday, Nov 19, 2021 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

VIRTUAL EVENT - ZOOM WEBINAR

How did Chinese migration to the goldfields of California, Australia and South Africa both upend the global economy and forge modern conceptions of race?

Join us for a conversation with historian Mae Ngai (Lung Family Professor Asian American Studies, and Professor of History at Columbia University) about her remarkable new book, The Chinese Question: The Gold Rushes and Global Politics (Norton, 2021), with discussants Harvey Dong (Continuing Lecturer of Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies) and Christopher Tomlins (Elizabeth Josselyn Boalt Professor of Law), and moderator Lok Siu (Associate Professor of Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies).

Presented by Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies, the Asian American Research Center, the Center for Race & Gender, Eastwind Books of Berkeley, and the IGS Race, Ethnicity and Immigration Colloquium.
