Ghosts of Gold Mountain relates the epic history of the Chinese who built the Transcontinental Railroad. Gordon Chang’s book draws from more than seven years of work conducted by the Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project at Stanford, a project co-directed by him. As a professor of history at Stanford and multi-media expert, his many books and publications focus on US-China issues, bringing Chinese American voices to light, and on Asian American art history. 

Gordon Chang, a fourth-generation Californian, is Senior Associate Vice Provost for Under Graduate Education and the Olive H. Palmer Professor in Humanities at Stanford University. He has also served as the Director of the Asian American Studies Program and the Center for East Asian Studies at Stanford. A charismatic and engaging speaker, Dr. Chang will share with us many of the untold stories of the building of the Transcontinental Railroad in this presentation.
