It’s Immigration Awareness Week at UCI – a good time to bring to these airwaves, UCI history lecturer Tina Shull to talk about her work as a principle activist with Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC). Resources for engaging on behalf of an ever increasing vulnerable sector in our society include: https://www.facebook.com/Madres-y-Familias-Deportadas-en-Accion-895034303955446/, https://www.change.org/p/end-the-quota, http://www.endisolation.org/; as well as Tina’s blog https://medium.com/imm-print.
The second guest (min 32) is Jeanne Scheper, UCI Professor of Gender and Sexuality Studies, talks about her recently released book entitled: “Moving Performances: Divas, Iconicity, and Remembering the Modern Stage,” from Rutgers University Press. She reprises early 20th Century greats: Aida Overton Walker, Loie Fuller, Libby Holman, and Josephine Baker. We let listeners make your own connections with contemporary divas, before you pick up your own copy of the book, available at your independent book dealer or through Rutgers Press.
