Templeton Campus Center
Join the Lewis & Clark Bookstore on Wednesday, February 4th to celebrate the latest book from Elliott Young, Professor of History.
In Alien Nation, “Young traces the pivotal century of Chinese migration to the Americas, beginning with the 1840s at the start of the “coolie” trade and ending during World War II. The Chinese came as laborers, streaming across borders legally and illegally and working jobs few others wanted, from constructing railroads in California to harvesting sugar cane in Cuba”. This is the first transnational history of Chinese migration to the Americas.
Light refreshments will be served during this event.
