Feb. 4, 2019 - The "Our Stories Matter" discussion series is back for the spring semester, sponsored by the Center for Integrative Studies and the Center for Multicultural Engagement. Join us for this thought-provoking series focused on interdisciplinary, evidence-based perspectives, presented by CSUCI faculty and/or invited experts who will speak to and discuss specific topics related to fascism, white supremacy, current events (local to global), in the context of CSUCI's stated values of diversity, equity and inclusion.

The series will kick off this Wednesday, Feb. 6, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Broome 2480. "Fragmented Depictions: Shaping our ethnic and cultural identities," will be presented by Assistant Professor of Art History, Theresa Avila, and Fran Elson, a fused glass artist and child of Holocaust survivors in our community. They will discuss the use of visual displays of people's stories and painful memories. This talk will contribute to our understanding of how fragmented identities are developed and pieced together through art and graphic images, helping create awareness of social injustices that have impacted many generations of Latino and Jewish families. 

Light refreshments will be provided.
