About the Speaker Series: Landscapes of Migration, Incarceration and Resistance
Arts + Design Friday events are free and open to the public and will be held in person at BAMPFA’s Barbro Osher Theater. Doors open at 11:15 AM, and lectures run from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. All in-person lectures will also be live streamed and captioned. To register for live streaming, go to futurehistories.berkeley.edu/angel-island/.

In Fall 2022, the series will explore how the arts transform understanding about the past into possibilities for the future, with a focus on immigration, othering and belonging. The course is part of the multi-genre project “A Year on Angel Island,” and we’ll use the former immigration and incarceration station at this meaningful spot in San Francisco Bay as a jumping-off point for exploring themes of exclusion, identity and resistance across geographies and genres including film, dance, literature, visual arts, and music.

Sep 2, 2022 11:30 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
