This year’s California Council for the Promotion of History conference theme, History and Community in California, invites presentations that investigate all aspects of our state’s past in which community themes have played a significant role. Our venue, the San Gabriel Valley (Arcadia), provides a convenient base camp for exploring recent changes in community demographics and culture, especially Asian-American immigration and settlement. “Community” is a loaded word with many meanings. A community can be a spot on the map or a place in the heart, a tangible locale rooted in space and time, an identity no less real because imagined, a focus of remembrance, of concern, of aspiration, of politics and of policy. Much of California history has turned on questions of community. Please join with your colleagues in making the 2007 CCPH conference in Arcadia a success.
