The Humanities Institute has served as an institution- al home to BOOM: A Journal of California, co-edited by


Carolyn de la Peña, professor of American Studies and Humanities Institute director, and Louis Warren, W. Turrentine Jackson Professor of Western U.S. History, since its founding in the spring of 2011. A peer-reviewed quarterly journal, BOOM speaks not only to the schol- arly community but also to the broader public about the vital social, cultural, and political issues facing Califor- nia and the region.


‘‘An engaging and visually attractive forum for scholars and artists to describe some of California’s remarkable stories.’’


In its first year of publication, Library Journal named


BOOM one of the Best Magazines of 2011, praising it as “an engaging and visually attractive forum for scholars and artists to describe some of California’s remarkable stories. It brings history and social sciences to life with readable scholarship that will not only please scholars and entertain general readers but also interest patrons well beyond California’s borders.” The first five issues covered topics including California design, immigra- tion, the natural and built environment, and the state of crisis in California. In the spring 2012 special issue, guest editors Christina Cogdell, UC Davis professor of design, and Stuart Kendall, a professor at the California College of the Arts, presented a collection of articles, in- terviews, and images exploring “the centrality of design to California politics and culture.”
