Hidden Histories: Picturing the Past

June 19, 2021 | 11:00 a.m. | Virtual Event

Online, statewide & beyond

The Portland Chinatown Museum is pleased to announce the fourth program in the Hidden Histories: Oregon's Early Chinatowns and Chinese Worker Settlements series, which was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities. Please join us on Saturday, June 19 with archaeologist Chelsea Rose, novelist Jessica Shi, and filmmaker Barre Fong. 

Using the Oregon city of Jacksonville as a case study, this program will feature a presentation of its archaeology and history followed by a discussion highlighting the challenges, opportunities, and importance of researching and documenting the stories of early Chinese Americans, including how archaeological data and primary documents can be used to help understand community history, inform media and the arts, promote cross-discipline collaboration, and improve access to primary research, as well as the importance of community involvement and investment in archaeological investigations into the Chinese diaspora in Oregon.
