The 2008 Imagining America Conference

"Layers of Place, Movements of People: Public Engagement in a Diverse America"
October 2-4, 2008
Los Angeles, California
Hosted by the Center for Diversity and Democracy, University of Southern California.

Join us to discuss how peoples, places, and disciplines intersect and shape the work of public engagement. Los Angeles is the ideal site for these conversations, as a world city that attracts and reconfigures people from across the globe. It is also an overlapping convergence of communities and landscapes: spatial and imagined, cultural and commercial, racial, ethnic, and generational, religious and ideological, urban, suburban, rural, and wild. How do colleges and universities relate to these layers of local life?

How do scholars and artists respond to the displacement resulting from the "development" of the university, college, city, or town? What role do public scholars and artists play in political and cultural conversations about the meaning of demographic, racial, and ethnic change within rapidly changing communities of all sizes? How might the research, practice, and collaborations of scholars and artists contribute to public discussion of demographic, social, and political change?
