Personal bio
Dr. Carol Lynn McKibben is an Affiliate Scholar for The Bill Lane Center for the American West and The Urban Studies Program at Stanford. She is an Organization of American Historians Distinguished Lecturer. She is the foremost authority on ethnicity and race for the Central Coast Region of California and has just completed her third book project, SALINAS: Race and Resilience in an Agricultural City (Stanford University Press, 2021).She has been teaching courses in California history, urban history race and ethnicity and immigration history at Stanford for fifteen years. She has also engaged in numerous community based research projects on the Monterey Peninsula for thirty years in coordination with the Haas Center for Public Service at Stanford. Her first book, Beyond Cannery Row: Sicilian Women, Immigration, and Community in Monterey, 1915-1999 placed women at the center of a transnational migration story that focused on the ways migration re-shaped Sicilian fishing families as they moved back and forth from villages in Sicily to Monterey, California and, at the same time, altered the character of the city over the course of the twentieth century. Dr. McKibben served as Director of the Seaside History Project from 2005-2012. Her second book, Racial Beachhead: Diversity and Democracy in a Military Town (Stanford University Press, 2012) showed how federal investment and diversity of personnel stationed at nearby Fort Ord transformed a small community, Seaside, into an important center of civil rights activism in California.
