Today at noon, Grace Delgado examines the Chinese diaspora in the U.S.–Mexico borderlands and looks at immigration, nationalism, and racism during the late 19th and early 20th century through the experiences of Chinese migrants in this region, against the backdrop of national unrest in Mexico and the era of exclusionary immigration policies in the United States. A book signing will follow the program.
“Making the Chinese Mexican: Global Migration, Localism, and Exclusion in the U.S.–Mexico Borderlands” is today at noon in the McGowan Theater in the National Archives in Washington, DC. Enter in through the “Special Events” entrance.
