One of the nation’s leading immigration and Asian American historians, Erika Lee teaches American history at the University of Minnesota, where she is a Regents Professor and Director of the Immigration History Research Center.

The granddaughter of Chinese immigrants, Lee grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Recently elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, she is a frequent commentator in the media and the author of four award-winning books including The Making of Asian America: A History and America for Americans: A History of Xenophobia in the United States.

Called “unflinching and powerful” by Carol Anderson (author of White Rage) and “essential reading” by Ibram X. Kendi (author of How to Be an Antiracist), America for Americans won the American Book Award, the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature, and was highlighted in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the New York Public Library as one of the most important books illuminating the Trump era and informing essential issues in the 2020 election.
