Course Description and Goals:

This course examined the history of race and ethnic communities in San Diego through partnerships with community organizations and oral history. Drawing from interdisciplinary research and methods, we studied race, migration, militarism, and the border in San Diego. Students conducted community-engaged research, developed public and digital humanities skills, and preserved a collection of oral histories for future scholarship on San Diego. In collaboration with their community partners, students also created inspiring art projects which were shared at our end of the quarter Art Exhibit and Celebration at the United Women of East Africa Community Center in City Heights, San Diego.
