New Narratives on the Peopling of America: Mae Ngai and Jack Tchen – 3/11/2020

The Zolberg Institute on and is pleased to welcome Mae Ngai, Lung Family Professor of Asian American Studies and Professor of at Columbia University, and Jack Tchen, Clement A Price Chair of Public History & Humanities at Rutgers University, to The New School to continue the New on the Peopling of America series.

With guidance from Professor Ngai and Professor Tchen, we will continue the journey.
