The Massachusetts Historical Society presents Thomas Chen of Brown University, speaking about "Remaking Boston's Chinatown: Race, Place, and Redevelopment after World War II," with comment by Jim Vrabel, author of A People's History of the New Boston.

Thomas Chen's paper examines how Boston’s Chinese American community confronted urban change in the decades after World War II. Focusing on contests over Chinatown space and place, it explores how postwar formations of Chinese American identity and community were intertwined with the urban transformation that Boston and other American cities underwent in this period.

The seminar is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required. Send an e-mail to seminars@masshist.org.

Location: Massachusetts Historical Society, 1154 Boylston Street, Boston, MA
