Jack (John Kuo Wei) Tchen is the Clement A. Price Professor of Public History and Humanities and the Director of the Price Institute. Extending his past work with disenfranchised communities (documenting and archiving the past, present, and future matters important to them), Professor Tchen is focused on two concerns – supporting research and documentation that tells the more accurate history of settler colonialism and enslavement’s extractivist impacts on Indigenous Lands and disenfranchised people in the Newark-NYC Metro Region, and grappling with the ongoing local, regional, and global legacies of climate change, environmental racism, and ecological injustice.
