On Thursday, February 7th, the CSUB Theatre Program sponsored the 33rd annual Spotlight Festival for local high school students.
Eighteen high schools were in attendance, bringing over 450 students to the Doré Theatre for a day of performances, workshops, original scenes, designs and monologues. High school students learned new skills and received feedback on their work. CSUB Theatre faculty, staff, students and alumni came together to bring this festival to life.
The exhibition Talking to Action: Art, Pedagogy and Activism in the Americas is opening at ASU Art Museum in Tempe, Arizona this weekend. Curated by Assistant Professor of ART Bill Kelley Jr. for the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative
Dr. Mustafah Dhada from our History department was featured not only on the front page of the AHA but also the front cover of History in Perspectives.
Congratulations Dr. Dhada!
Please join us to congratulate Dr. Maryann Parada, from the Modern Languages and Literature department, for receiving a $5,000 quick grant from California Humanities for her grant proposal entitled: “Spanish Language and Linguistics Speaker Series.”
Spanish Language & Linguistics Speaker Series will engage the Bakersfield community in discussing and reflecting upon the social, education and economic importance of Spanish and bilingualism in local context presented in a series of four lectures from March to November 2018. Speakers will include researchers, scholars and practitioners and will highlight the vital functions of Spanish in areas such as the courts, community health and K-12 dual immersion bilingual education. This project seeks to increase public awareness of Spanish language social services and educational programs, build connections between employers and potential employees in these areas and facilitate dialogue on these topics following the lectures.
During Professor Mark Lamas Jr.'s “A History of God” (RS1128) course he used defixiones ("curse tablets") to teach his students about the nature of fate and the gods in the ancient world. Each student created their own defixio by using a nail and tin foil. Some of the students cursed the DMV, former boyfriends and girlfriends, and even professors!
