UC Berkeley California Studies Dinner Seminar: Rachel Brahinsky and Alex Tarr, “A People’s Guide to the S.F. Bay Area” January 17, 2019

Most guidebooks to the Bay Area all but ignore the region’s role as the leading Left Coast metropolis.  In contrast, Rachel Brahinsky and Alex Tarr concentrate on the region’s heritage of progressive politics, social activism, and cultural rebellion in their forthcoming “People’s Guide to the San Francisco Bay Area,” to be published by UC Press. The book will be a resource for both visitors and Bay Area natives.  Rachel is Assistant Professor and Director of the Urban and Public Affairs program at University of San Francisco and Alex is Assistant Professor of Geography at Worcester State University.  Both received their PhD in geography at UC Berkeley.

The session will be on Thursday, January 17 from 7 to 9:15 p.m. at the UCB Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, 2521 Channing Way (just east of Telegraph Ave.).

Free admission and dinner.
