In this special lecture, Gordon H. Chang will speak about his book, Fateful Ties: A History of America’s Preoccupation with China (Harvard University Press: 2015) that studies the long history of America-China relations. Chang covers this history from Jamestown to today and gives historical context for the current American fixation with China. He suggests that this fascination continues centuries of American interest in China, an interest that is peculiar to the United States.
Organized by UCLA Asian American Studies Centerand Stanley Kwok Lau and Dora Wong Lau Endowment for Chinese American Studies. Co-Sponsored by UCLA Asian American Studies Department, Center for Chinese Studies, Department of History, and International Institute.
The UCLA Asian American Studies Center and UCLA Charles E. Young Research Library Special Collections are honored to host an inaugural public reception, featuring Aiko Herzig-Yoshinaga, to celebrate the release of the Herzig Papers to researchers, community, and students.
Now available to the public at UCLA, the Herzig Papers serves to enhance public knowledge about the unjust mass removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II and offers invaluable lessons to anyone vitally concerned with issues of social justice and constitutionality in America.
Hosted by UCLA Asian American Studies Center, Dr. Sanbo and Kazuko Sakaguchi Research Fund in Japanese American Studies, and UCLA Library Special Collections.
Additional funding for archival collection processing was provided by U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program, the George and Sakaye Aratani Community Advancement Research Endowment (C.A.R.E.) grant, and UCLA AASC Friends of the Reading Room’s Herzig Archival Collection Project.
