2nd annual Alden-Berg Distinguished Faculty Symposium draws large crowd
The 2nd annual Alden-Berg Distinguished Faculty Symposium attracted a crowd of 300 students, alumni, and friends of the Department this past Wednesday, October 17th. The panel featured the diverse perspectives of Professor Ellen Dubois, Professor Robin D.G. Kelley, and Professor Sanjay Subrahmanyam on this year’s presidential election. Both the panel and Q & A session were moderated by Professor Mary Yeager. A pleasant reception followed in the UCLA Faculty Center courtyard.
The Alden-Berg Distinguished Faculty Symposium honors two distinguished alumnae and friends of the Department, Dr. Geraldine Alden and Barbara Berg, and draws on the excellence of the History Department faculty to address important issues of the past and present. Devoted students of history and mainstays of the Friends of History group, Jeri and Barbara have contributed in manifold ways to the well-being of the Department. We thank them for yet another wonderful evening of reflection and important historical perspective on this most timely topic.
