The UC Santa Cruz Emeriti Group presents the 2016 Spring Emeriti Faculty Lecture
Discovering the UC Santa Cruz Campus 
James Clifford
Professor Emeritus, History of Consciousness Department, UC Santa Cruz
The University of California, Santa Cruz, built in a redwood forest overlooking Monterey Bay, is famously beautiful. But the usual language of aesthetics does little to reveal what makes the place extraordinary. The lecture, based on years of walking the rugged site, uses color photography and historical research to explore the interaction of architecture and ecology. It traces UC Santa Cruz’s experience of environmental design through changing times and ponders its continued significance.

Complimentary parking will be available in the Performing Arts parking lot. Questions? Please contact the Special Events Office at (831) 459-5003 or email
