Research Interests: Modern U.S. History, Migration and Border Controls, U.S. Empire and the Pacific world
Kornel Chang is assistant professor of History and American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark. His research interests include modern U.S. history, international migration and border controls, Asian diaspora, and the United States in the Pacific world. His current book project is a study of the western U.S.-Canadian borderlands in the Pacific world, examining how the region arose from frontier expansion, the globalizing forces of capital and empire, and the territorializing process of state formation in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
