UMALALI: The Garifuna Women's Project

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

8:00 PM Price Center Ballroom East

Descendents of shipwrecked African slaves who married into the indigenous Central American population, the Garifuna people have been struggling to retain their unique language, music, and traditions in the face of globalization. Blending rich vocal textures with echoes of rock, blues, funk, African, Latin and Caribbean music, Umalali is an entrancing journey into the heart and soul of Garifuna women whose strength, hard work, and perseverance provide the bedrock of their community.

Meetings will be held in the conference room of the Cross-Cultural Center (2nd floor of Price Center) 4:00pm-5:00 on Wednesdays of odd weeks (3, 5, 7, 9). For more information, contact kqrean@gmail.com.


Exchange Applications Available for 2010-11 Academic year. DEADLINE is February 12, 2010.


The purpose of the program is to provide a unique opportunity for students to live and study at important institutions of higher learning that are significantly different from the social and educational environment typical of California state colleges and universities. Similarly, the exchange students coming to UCSD from Morehouse and Spelman will have an opportunity to experience an exciting and very different educational environment.

"TransCalifornia" Conference
Friday-Saturday, February 12-13, 2010
UC San Diego
TransCalifornia is intended to bring together scholars, artists, and activists working on California's many geo-political and conceptual borders. In collaboration with the California Cultures in Comparative Perspective program at UC-San Diego, the MutliCampus Research Group in International Performance and Culture has organized "TransCalifornia" to include scholars, artists, and activists not necessarily affiliated with either group, but whose work critically explores California's "borders," in both the material and metaphoric sense of that word.
