A year-long project and a four-day symposium to explore current scholarship in migration studies for faculty from California State University, Los Angeles and neighboring Hispanic-Serving community colleges.

CSULA will hold a four-day colloquium in June, 2007, ?Cultures of Engagement in an Era of Displacement,? to bridge gaps across humanities and departments separated by institutional structures and promote collegial collaboration in curricular and programmatic development. Faculty participants will share research on culture and migration, a topic of interest to a large number of humanities faculty at CSULA in part because of the institution's location in East Los Angeles, which has given many researchers here unique perspectives on phenomena related to migration. Research emerging from this geographic context and specific historical moment can therefore contribute critical insights and translate those insights back into the classroom by promoting curricular and programmatic development. Lead-up seminars will prepare participants for the colloquium; working groups will convene in the months following for curriculum development, programmatic planning and further cooperative grantwriting.
