Dr. Cheong Soon Gan researches the intersection of media, food, ethnicity, diasporas, nation building, and identity (both personal and group) in post-colonial Malaysia. At UW-Superior, he teaches a broad range of Asian history courses, including Women, Colonialism, and Nationalism in Modern Southeast Asia; Modern India; Re-interrogating the Vietnam War; Samurai: A History of Japan; Empire in Modern Asia; and World History. In the pipeline are courses on the Asian-American Experience, and Food in Asia.

Currently, Dr. Gan is continuing his research on the impact of propaganda on the everyday lives of Malaysians in the 1960s, as well as the study of food as an inter-ethnic cultural glue in heterogeneous societies. He is also interested in the presence of Asia in Superior (and the Twin Ports in general) and Southeast Asian-Americans. Dr. Gan is an active member of the Association of Asian Studies and the vice-chair of the Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei (MSB) Studies Group.

Dr. Gan received his Ph.D. and M.A. in History from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.A. (2nd Upper) in English Literature from the University of Malaya. He was previously a reporter and editor in Singapore with The Straits Times and its sister papers.
