The Barbara Christian Conference Room (554 Barrows Hall)
We recently commemorated the twenty-fifth anniversary of UC Berkeley's American Cultures (AC) curriculum. During those Spring 2014 moments of recollection, we situated the history in which the AC curriculum was born. We asked how AC came to be, what was it responding to and what it hoped to provide. The conclusion? To deliver a critical analysis of the context of our racial histories and its effects on our current lives and futures. If so, then today, we are in an 'AC moment'.
We open our eyes on the Spring 2015 semester with the next set of shadows in this palimpsest to be added. And they will. But who is the audience for them? Who are they speaking to? Who sees them?
