November 11, 2020
To inaugurate the series, the faculty of the Cultural Studies department introduced the themes of the program on November 11, 2020 in the form of a conversation between the faculty on why they have chosen these themes to represent the future(s) of their field and how these themes connect with their own scholarly biographies. You can watch the recording of the conversation here.
Claremont Graduate University occupies unceded Indigenous land. The Cultural Studies Department acknowledges the Gabrieleno/Tongva peoples as the ancestral caretakers of this land (Torojoatngna), and we pay our respects to Honuukvetam (ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (elders), and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present, and emerging.
