About Kate Wilson

I am an associate professor of history at Georgia State University, where I teach public history, immigration/ethnic history, oral history, and material culture. My current research focuses on the impact of ethnic communities on the urban cultural landscape, and the representation of immigration in public history contexts. My book, Ethnic Renewal in Philadelphia's Chinatown: Space, Place and Struggle, was published by Temple University Press in April 2015.
