The Search for Common Ground: Culture in California's Central Valley

A curricular development project to bring humanities faculty from Central Valley community colleges to Modesto Junior College to study the local and regional culture of California’s Central Valley.

Five faculty members from the humanities disciplines (humanities, history, philosophy, and literature) will explore the diverse cultural backgrounds of the populations in our community in order to make the curriculum in these disciplines more relevant to the students in humanities courses. The project includes lectures by imminent scholars from California universities; multi-week seminars on specific topics; exploration of arts, museums, centers and festivals; development of learning modules that reflect the findings of the seminars; and a symposium to share findings with community college faculty from around the Valley. Humanities curriculum will be revised to reflect the local and regional culture of the people of California's Central Valley.
