Oct 24 James Clifford: “’Always Coming Home:’ On Postcolonial (Im)possibility in California”
James Clifford taught in UCSC’s History of Consciousness Department for 33 years and was founding director of the Center for Cultural Studies. Clifford is currently completing Returns, a book about indigenous cultural politics that will be the third in a trilogy. The first volume, The Predicament of Culture (1988) juxtaposed essays on 20th-century ethnography, literature, and art. The second, Routes (1997) explored the dialectics of dwelling and traveling in post-modernity.
