CHANGING CLIMATES:
CLASS, CULTURE, AND POLITICS IN AN ERA OF GLOBAL WARMING
 
California Studies Association, Berkeley City College, April 11-13, 2008

California faces economic and social transformations even as it grapples
with policy questions forced by climate change. These challenges confront a
state fractured along lines of class, race, and immigration status, and
with little support for public services. How can we overcome political
deadlock and respond to these challenges without deepening the fractures?
What new opportunities for community, creativity, and democracy do these
very crises offer? Join the California Studies Association for its 18th
annual conference to address these and related questions.

We are soliciting panels of up to four speakers committed to raising
important questions and engaging with a lively audience. Moderators are
encouraged. Individual presentations may be accepted if they can be fit
together into a panel. Non-traditional forms of discourse and presentation
are welcome.

Berkeley City College is located in downtown Berkeley at 2050 Acton Street,
accessible by BART and AC Transit. Lodging is available nearby. Other CSA
information, including descriptions of past conferences, is available at
