California Studies Dinner Seminars

The California Studies Dinner Seminars is a forum for the discussion of California politics, economy, and society that meets once a month on the Berkeley campus. It brings together scholars, students, and specialists from around the Bay Area to hear speakers talk about new books, research and ideas of note concerning California. The series has been going strong for twenty years (with a predecessor going back thirty years!), and is the finest intellectual forum on California history, geography and public affairs in Northern California. Funded with the generous support of the IRLE and the Townsend Center for the Humanities.
