|AMERICAN COMMUNITIES PROGRAM
EPISTEMOLOGIES: CORPOREALITIES, BODIES OF KNOWLEDGE, AND
The American Communities Program (ACP) at Cal State Los Angeles presents another season of enriching encounters with thinkers, scholars, artists, and a variety of creative minds on the forefront of the humanities. The 2009-10 ACP theme is American Epistemologies: Corporealities, Bodies of Knowledge, and Communities. The upcoming year offers events to generate ideas and discussion about the creation and dissemination of different types of knowledge.
ACP Director Dr. Maria Karafilis says of this year's theme, "Creating and sharing knowledge are the primary functions of a university and of the humanities. The ACP, this year, will focus on investigating how the processes of knowledge have changed over time, and how different ways of creating and communicating can affect what we know about our communities. This seems especially pressing in the 21st century." The current theme is intended to provide interdisciplinary opportunities for departments and colleges to share and create knowledge together.
This year, the
American Communities Program will host guests including Leon Leyson
(the youngest member of Schindler's list), Kimberle Crenshaw (Professor of
Law at Columbia and UCLA, and founder of the African American Policy Forum), Daniel Hernandez (acclaimed blogger based in Los Angeles and Mexico City, and
creator of the blog Intersections), and Madeleine Brand (broadcast journalist most recently with National Public Radio), and will showcase the work of CSULA faculty and students. Last quarter, the ACP was one of
the co-sponsors of the Walls of Passion: The Murals of Los Angeles
exhibit that opened at the CSULA Fine Arts Gallery and was later
invited to exhibit at the Gallery of the Mexican Consulate of Los
Angeles. Also last quarter, the ACP sponsored the standing-room-only public lecture, The Cure for Color Blindness: Why Anti-Racism Matters Now, delivered by Dr. George Lipsitz, a renowned Professor of Black Studies at UC Santa Barbara.
All events sponsored by the ACP are designed to start conversation and provide personal enrichment. As Dr. Karafilis notes, "The ACP works to deepen our understanding of the communities we all encounter and help shape through our lived experience, as well as the ideal communities we'd like to create. Through ACP events, our guests can learn, discuss, and share ways to make an impact on these communities."
The ACP works to fulfill the mission of CSULA and to promote awareness of the role of the humanities in understanding and improving our communities. The ACP is unique also because it is responsive to the intellectual and cultural imperatives of its students. Dr. Karafilis always welcomes faculty and students to share their ideas about issues of interest to them and works collaboratively with them to design ACP programming.
All ACP events are FREE and open to the community. Listed here are just a few of the free events planned for Fall 2009:
