UCLA Conference: Superdiversity California Style

From the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center:

IAC INAUGURAL CONFERENCE: "SUPERDIVERSITY CALIFORNIA STYLE: NEW APPROACHES TO RACE, CIVIL RIGHTS, GOVERNANCE AND CULTURAL PRODUCTION"

Event Date: Friday, March 1, 2013 - 9:00am to 6:00pm

Event Location: UCLA Faculty Center, California Room

Los Angeles has come to epitomize the global phenomenon of dramatically increased ethnic, racial, linguistic, and religious diversity.  With intensified immigration from all parts of the world, new racial complexities, and the steady growth of Latino and Asian American populations, the entire state of California has become “majority-minority” as districts around the nation follow suit.  The resulting intercultural mélange has obscured some traditional boundaries, while encouraging new forms of production and being.  This new reality raises fundamental questions about the pursuit of equality, social justice, racialization, and the various ways that global pressures interact with and shape our responses to emerging geo-political dynamics. At the same time, ethnic and cultural fusions have launched an explosion of bold new musical, artistic, and even culinary forms.  What these changes mean for Los Angeles specifically and the United States remains under-examined and poorly understood.  Structured in the form of a one-day conference, with a preconference roundtable on the preceding evening, "Superdiversity California Style" seeks to initiate a conversation about the foregoing developments and identify the kind of research that is necessary to both understand and manage the changing face of our society.
