UC Berkeley California Studies Seminar: Gray Brechin on the Cal Stadium, “A Monumental Memorial to Denial” September 12, 2018

Leave a comment

In 1923 UC Berkeley built Memorial Stadium squarely on top of the Hayward Fault.  Nearly ninety years later, the university spent nearly a half billion dollars retrofitting the structure and adding a large athletic training facility.  On Wed. Sept. 12, Gray Brechin critically discusses these and other events in the stadium’s history.  Brechin is a research scholar in the UCB Geography Department and founder of the Living New Deal Project.  He is the author of several works, including the ground-breaking Imperial San Francisco.

The session is at the UCB Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, 2521 Channing Way (just east of Telegraph Ave.) from 7-9:15 p.m.  Free admission and dinner.
