CSUN Dept of Theatre presents ARCADIA, a time-bending tale of wit and romance by Tom Stoppard (Academy Award-winner for SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE). Not far from Britain's Downton Abbey resides Sidley Park manor, where nature and The Nature of Things are explored.
March 1-3, 6-10
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm - Grand Salon, University Student Union
CSUNâ€™s Womenâ€™s Research and Resource Center (WRRC) was one of nine campuses recently awarded a grant by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to implement community-based solutions in response to AAUWâ€™s new research, â€śGraduating to a Pay Gap: The Earnings of Women and Men One Year After College Graduation.â€ť Thanks in large part to this grant from AAUW, the WRRC and co-sponsors will host an event featuring Lilly Ledbetter, who fought for 10 years to close the gender pay gap.
That Supreme Court ruling was in turn legislatively nullified by the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first major piece of legislation President Barack Obama signed into law. Ledbetter will speak about "Equal Work, Equal Pay" on March 6th in the Grand Salon at 4 p.m., after which there will be a Q&A and a signing of her new book, Grace and Grit.
Tuesday, September 18 - Friday, July 26 All Day - Tseng Gallery, Oviatt Library

Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.

Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams: How the Arts Are Transforming a Community
The Northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is the second largest community of Mexicans and Central Americans in the United States with 500,000 people. The book explores twenty years of how the lack of neighborhood cultural spaces adversely affects struggling families and communities, and how the example of Tia Chucha's inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national arts policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.
