Envisioning California Conference

The Envisioning California Conference, founded by the Center for California Studies in 1989, assembles Californians with particular insight into the bits and pieces of California's diversity of histories, cultures and philosophies, and the consequences of the diversity.  Our discussions attempt to analyze successes and failures in efforts to bring Californians together and to keep differences from breeding discord. We question what defines California, who Californians are, and where California is going.  We reach into the broad vistas of the California experience, from politics, ethnicity, and history to the arts, education and the environment.
