In this panel, UCSB’s recipients of the 2013-14 UC President’s Faculty Fellowship in the Humanities will discuss issues involved in making communities. Stephanie Batiste’s larger project attempts to assess the nuances of black identity and meaning making in late twentieth and early twenty-first century Los Angeles around issues of violence and death. Her talk for this panel analyzes the play Dreamscape by Rickerby Hinds, a hip hop drama that explores the event of a young woman shot to death by four police officers near Los Angeles, California. Veronica Castillo-Munoz’s current project examines family labor, and Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, American, and European migration to Baja California (1875-1950). Her talk for this panel examines how transnational labor and mixed race marriages shaped the Baja California borderlands.
