San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar Colleges Present:

Reclaiming the Humanities: Resistance, Justice, & the Arts

Friday, April 27, 2018 | Corporate Education Center | San Diego City College

The San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar Colleges in the San Diego Community College District invite you to participate in a unique conference to explore the ways in which an Arts and Humanities perspective is beneficial to solving some of the world’s most pressing problems. Social issues regarding immigration, race/ethnicity/gender, education, technology, poverty, and environment demand our attention. This conference will offer an interactive space where students and faculty can connect, discuss, and share their voices, knowledge, and contributions in the multidisciplinary field of the Arts and Humanities.

This conference is hosted by the Preparing Accomplished Transfers to the Humanities (PATH) Program at San Diego Community College District, funded by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in a collaboration between San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar Colleges, and UC San Diego Arts & Humanities Division. Our goal is to help educate a new generation of thoughtful leaders in the Arts and Humanities.

Proposals are now being accepted for the following topics:

  • Class, Culture, & Identity
  • Critical Thinking
  • Digital Humanities
  • Gender
  • Media Literacy/Competencies
  • Neoliberal Education
  • Race and Ethnicity
  • The Arts
  • The Body and Sexuality
  • The Environment
  • US/Mexico Border Issues
