Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Registration required.
This program will no longer be presented in-person and will be presented entirely on Zoom.

The establishment of the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE) at Stanford in 1996 ushered in what our presenter Professor Al Camarillo refers to as "Ethnic Studies 2.0." As the founding director of CCSRE and one of the founding scholars of Mexican American history and Chicano studies, Professor Camarillo will tell a series of "origin stories" about the formation of CCSRE and the history of ethnic studies at Stanford and beyond. These origin stories are particularly important for understanding why the university is making plans to develop a new Institute for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, and Society and a Department of African and African American Studies.
