4:00 to 5:00pm
Humanities 108

Curtis Marez is a Professor of Ethnic Studies at UC San Diego. Some of his work includes: “Cesar Chavez, the UFW, and the History of Star Wars,” and “From Mr. Chips to Scarface, or Racial Capitalism in Breaking Bad.” In his latest work, Farm Worker Futurism: Speculative Technologies of Resistance, Marez reveals that the historical role of technology has had much to do with depicting the lives of farm laborers in the United States. His book explores the friction between agribusiness and farm workers through the lens of visual culture. In his presentation, he will introduce his book by leading the audience through its interactive digital companion, Cesar Chavez’s Video Collection.

Come meet Curtiz Marez right after his presentation at El Centro from 5:00PM to 6:30PM.

Proudly presented by American Studies, Cinematic Arts, English, Raza Graduate Student Association, and El Centro de la Raza.
