Screening: Netflix’s Gentefied

Friday Sep 18 - Oct 16 | 7:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Los Angeles wouldn’t be the city it is today without Mexican Americans and their vibrant, influential culture. Their contributions have been so powerful over the decades, specifically on the West Coast, that Netflix’s latest dramedy, Gentefied, attempts to tackle the complex history of the culture’s evolvement, as well as how a neighborhood in East L.A. is currently grappling with gentrification. Gentrification, realistically-speaking, is occurring at such a rapid pace, especially in Los Angeles, but nothing can defeat a Mexican American family’s strength to stand by each other in times of turmoil. Gentefied demonstrates just that in a very beautiful and moving way.

[Eventbrite] CRES Conversation Dr. Gooding

CRES CONVERSATIONS – The Five Faces of Oppression: Problems of the Well-Intentioned Liberal Society

Wednesday Oct 16 | 5:00 pm - 7:45 pm

Young (2018) in “Five Faces of Oppression” states that:

“Oppression designates the disadvantages and injustice some people suffer not because a tyrannical power coerces them but because of the everyday practices of a well-intentioned liberal society….” (emphases mine, p. 50).

Is liberal society really the problem? If yes, what can we do to combat that? How can we really fix the structural elements of oppression? Come and join us in our second CRES Conversation 2019 as we attempt to discuss these complex issues.

Open to students, faculty members and staff. Participants will be asked to read the brief attached article ahead of time (it’s only 10 small pages!) so that we have something to anchor the conversation. If you are able, please RSVP, so that we can plan for food, but last minute attendees are ok, too.
