CCI COURSE DEVELOPMENT GRANTS robyn magalit rodrigUEz (asian american stUDies) cecilia m. tsU (history)

Tsu’s proposal focused on the improvement and updat- ing of an established undergraduate offering, “Califor- nia History.” The redesigned course will take advantage of the latest research on the history of race relations and visual culture in California. New studies of race and ethnicity highlight the complex history of California. The introduction of new material such as documentary photographs, films, and other art forms and images will help students move beyond the traditional white-non- white framework to consider the historical interactions among minority groups.

Rodriguez’s proposed course, “Immigrant Routes/ Roots: Comparative Explorations of California’s Im- migrant Communities,” explores how migration shapes Californian and American identity. The course examines how immigrants from the Philippines and Mexico share similar histories of immigration and labor struggles that create new Californian communities and identities.

Janowitz was awarded a grant in support of a new course titled “Reading War/Fighting War,” in collaboration with Joseph Harvey of the Military Science ROTC pro- gram. The course is designed to facilitate a dialogue between two of the central “microclimates” within Cali- fornia—the UC campuses and military bases. Janowitz and Harvey hope to connect students unfamiliar with experiences of war with the veterans among our cam- pus populations. According to Janowitz, these encoun- ters will facilitate critical and civil discussion about the challenges facing America in a time of war. Readings on war and peace, such as the Iliad and the Bible, will be juxtaposed with presentations by current members of the armed forces. To reach as many people as possible, Janowitz will invite the campus community to join the 300-person class for special lectures of interest.
