(NORTHRIDGE, Calif., August 27, 2007) -- Join us at the 19th Annual Envisioning California Conference, sponsored by California State University, Northridge’s Center for Southern California Studies and CSU Sacramento’s Center for California Studies. The Conference will be held at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, September 19th, 2007.

This year’s Envisioning California Conference at the Skirball Cultural Center examines California’s rich history of immigration. The contributions of our immigrants – culturally, linguistically, economically – have made California a global innovator in industry, arts and science. Whether one views immigrants as partners or competitors, it is clear that immigration from all over the world has come to define the character of the state. This year’s panels will examine immigration through the lens of the state’s most pressing issues. Each panel is designed to assess the impact of immigration on a specific service area – historically, presently, and into the future. As always, the conference will bring together diverse experts from across the state to address these issues.

Speakers: Plenary Speakers include Hector Tobar, Val Zavala, Patt Morrison, Larry Mantle, John Trasvina, Stewart Kwoh, Blair Taylor, Pilar Marrero, and Robin Toma. Panelists represent community and non-governmental organizations, public agencies, and universities from across the state.

Registration: Register now and receive the friend of the center discount. Conference registration of $75 is all inclusive, covering all panels, keynotes, and lunch. Students may register for the conference at the following rates: Undergraduates $30.00 and Graduate Students $45.00.
