In conjunction with our ongoing exhibit A Taste for the Exotic, explore two critical strands in American Studies: policy conversations on immigration and social and educational conversations on diversity and multiculturalis​m all using the Chinese Exclusion Act. As author Benjamin Railton, son of the late Art Railton who authored The History of Martha’s Vineyard, shows, a fresh look at the Act overturns much of the received wisdom on immigration and American identity.
