Sacramento State’s Center for California Studies will present The Jeff Lustig Symposium from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 2, at the Alumni Center.

Several speakers, including Government Professor Emeritus William Dorman and Sacramento Bee Associate Editor Pia Lopez, will discuss Lustig’s major themes of state political issues, history and culture. Afterward, the audience will engage in a group discussion, followed by a reception with refreshments. The program is free and open to the public. Parking is free at the Alumni Center.

Lustig, a government professor who died last year, saw politics as the “collective artistry of the future.” He was director of the Center for California Studies at Sacramento State from 1989 to ’94, founding chair of the California Studies Association, from 1990 to ’98, and a trustee of the California Historical Society.
