Free Lecture - A People's Guide to Los Angeles
Saturday, July 18, 2015
9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
Dr. Laura Pulido joined us for a free, special presentation in July 2015.
Dr. Pulido is the co-author of A People’s Guide to Los Angeles (2012), which documents more than one hundred historic and contemporary places throughout the region that are essential to telling the story of race, class, gender, and sexuality in Los Angeles. Dr. Pulido discussed the places and histories featured in this alternative tour guide. Though little known, these sites expose the larger power dynamics that have shaped Los Angeles.
