Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This is an extensive video archive of 173 video cassettes and 10 audio cassettes with bound transcripts, originally acquired through purchase in U-matic format and later reformatted into VHS. It is also preserved in digital format and the videos are available online at https://archive.org/details/ucsantabarbara. The coverage includes a major 1982 conference held at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The collection contains presentations of musical theatrical works, cultural events such as el Dia de los Muertos and interviews with performers, artists and authors related to Chicano culture and society in California.
The University of California, Santa Cruz planning grant for Califas was directed by Eduardo Carrillo. The grant period was from January 1, 1982 - December 31, 1982. The videos and 7 bound volumes were purchased from Isaac Artenstein and cover some material that is different than the Santa Cruz planning grant project but are part of Califas: Chicano Art and Culture in California. The audio tapes are of the Califas conference held April 16 - 17, 1982 at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Volume 7 contains an index that describes the video and audio tapes. There is also a bound volume pertaining to the grant and conference events.
