10/29/2019 - In Celebration of Toni Morrison: Reflecting on a Legend
The passing of Nobel laureate, Toni Morrison, in August 2019, has been felt as an irreplaceable loss by many who were inspired by the power and beauty of her writing, her advocacy for Black writers, and the incisive and uncompromising commentary on race in the United States in her novels, essays and interviews. Morrison's work features in courses and scholarship at universities and colleges around the nation, including UC San Diego.

Join us for a panel of scholars who will read from Toni Morrison's works and reflect on her impact.

Panelists and moderator include:

Boatema Boateng, Associate Professor, Department of Communication, UC San Diego, Carlton Floyd, Associate Professor, Department of English, University of San Diego, Theresa Ford, Member, Toni Morrison Society & Professor Emerita, Grossmont College, Sara Clarke Kaplan, Associate Professor, Department of Ethnic Studies, UC San Diego, Charles Toombs, Professor, Department of Africana Studies, San Diego State University

10/25/2019 - Film & Discussion About Race, Mental Health & Community
As part of the Community, Arts and Resistance and Challenging Conversations series, the UC San Diego Institute of Arts and Humanities invites you to a special documentary film screening and discussion.

"Minding" the Gap," a film by Bing Liu, follows three young men who bond across racial lines to escape volatile families in their hometown. Ten years later, unsettling revelations force them to reckon with their families and each other.

"Minding the Gap" won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Filmmaking at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

Following the event will be a discussion about race, mental health, and community with Keire Johnson, one of the young men featured in the documentary and Erica Cho, Assistant Professor of Narrative Media at UC San Diego.

Event is free and open to the public!

10/18/2019 - Worshop: The Mexico-California and Mexico-Texas Relationships
If Texas and California were countries, they would be the second and third most important international relations for Mexico and many of its sub-State Governments (SSG), just after the U.S. and over countries like China, Canada, Germany, Great Britain or Spain. Mexico is the most important country for these two U.S. states and shares a border with both. However, the academic work on the relationship between Mexican and U.S. SSG is very scarce, and between the Mexican and U.S. federal governments and the SSG of the other country, it is practically nonexistent. This is especially true for the cases of Texas and California.

This workshop will serve as a place for us to explore ideas and proposals for the chapters of the book. We expect the authors to arrive at the workshop with an annotated index of their chapter, which will allow participants to discuss the content of each chapter.
