Los Angeles has come to epitomize the global phenomenon of dramatically increased ethnic, racial, linguistic, and religious diversity. With intensified immigration from all parts of the world, new racial complexities, and the steady growth of Latino and Asian American populations, the entire state of California has become “majority-minority” as districts around the nation follow suit. The resulting intercultural mélange has obscured some traditional boundaries, while encouraging new forms of production and being. This new reality raises fundamental questions about the pursuit of equality, social justice, racialization, and the various ways that global pressures interact with and shape our responses to emerging geo-political dynamics. At the same time, ethnic and cultural fusions have launched an explosion of bold new musical, artistic, and even culinary forms. What these changes mean for Los Angeles specifically and the United States remains under-examined and poorly understood. Structured in the form of a one-day conference, with a preconference roundtable on the preceding evening, Superdiversity California Style seeks to initiate a conversation about the foregoing developments and identify the kind of research that is necessary to both understand and manage the changing face of our society.

UCLA INSTITUTE OF AMERICAN CULTURES

The Institute of American Cultures (IAC) houses the ethnic studies research centers — the American Indian Studies Center, the Asian American Studies Center, the Bunche Center for African American Studies, and the Chicano Studies Research Center. Though launched in 1969 as a structure designed to expand, strengthen, and coordinate training and research in ethnic studies, its operations have recently been expanded and re-envisioned. This change reflects in part the unparalleled population shifts that have occurred in recent decades, which have transformed our sociocultural landscape, expanding both inter- and intra-group diversity as well as opportunities for inter-intra-sectional exchanges—what we term emerging America. Drawing on ethnic and American studies that serve as its intellectual core, the IAC is devoted to the study of these processes, their consequences and their potentials. The new IAC conducts and sponsors research and will continue to facilitate scholarship in ethnic studies through its fellowship and research grant programs. In addition, the IAC serves as a forum for intellectual and cultural exchange on campus and in Los Angeles communities and works to enhance student and faculty outreach and recruitment to UCLA.
