Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The UC Berkeley Department of Ethnic Studies Records contains materials documenting the UC Berkeley Ethnic Studies Department from its founding in 1968 – 1969 to the 2010s. Originally composed of four academic disciplines: Afro American Studies, Chicano Studies, Asian American Studies and Native American Studies, the department of Ethnic Studies grew out of a student-led strike to a nationally recognized academic unit, producing some of the most dynamic and influential scholarship in the field and struggling since its inception to transform education.
