Hear the word "suburbs," and what comes to mind right off probably isn't diversity... especially when it comes to race. But demographics are shifting.
What's the relationship between identity and place? Where does the West San Gabriel Valley sit in the context of changing landscapes? And does SoCal’s SGV – given the nation’s increasingly racially mixed population – provide insights into how individual and group identities may form, change, and sustain themselves in the future? This program will address these and other questions through a mix of conversation and interactive AV.
