A leading scholar in Asian American studies, Executive Editor of Journal of Asian American Studies, author of eleven books and over hundred articles, Professor Huping Ling of Truman State University will present her newly published book Chinese Chicago: Race, Transnational Migration, and Community since 1870 (Stanford University Press, 2012), from the three Moy brothers in the 1870s to the present Chinese Chicagoland, and in comparison with her earlier book Chinese St. Louis: From Enclave to Cultural Community (Temple University Press, 2004), the acclaimed “most comprehensive” and “groundbreaking” work “on Asian American community in the Midwest.” Ling focuses on how race, transnational migration, and community have defined Chinese in Chicago and St. Louis, with special attention to the unique characteristics of Chinese in the two major American Midwestern metropolises.
