She is the author of The Melancholy of Race: Assimilation, Psychoanalysis, and Hidden Grief, which examines the notion of racial grief at the intersection of culture, history, and law.

Professor Gordon Chang ’70 is interested in two areas of American life that are often considered separately. The historical connections between race and ethnicity in America, on the one hand, and foreign relations, on the other, are in fact profound. He explores these interconnections in his teaching and scholarship. He is the author of several essays and books, and brings a unique perspective on Asian American studies to the discussion. Prof. Chang is also the project co-organizer for the Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project, which will culminate with an online multi-lingual digital archive of historical materials, conferences in 2015 at Stanford and in China, and the publication of a book featuring new scholarship. Prof. Chang received his B.A. from Princeton, and his Masters and Ph.D. from Stanford University. Full bio can be read here: http://history.stanford.edu/chang_gordon.
