California in Transition

Home · Schedule · Bios · Standards · Readings · Teacher Resources

Many different kinds of people shaped the history of Alta California: ranchers and friars, soldiers and sailors, neophytes and former slaves. In this workshop, we will use primary sources to examine how different people viewed California as it transitioned from a frontier outpost of the Spanish empire to a Mexican state to American rule.

Speakers include Alex Saragoza, professor of History at UC Berkeley; Rose Marie Beebe, professor of Spanish Literature at Santa Clara University, and Emily Richards from the Berkeley History-Social Science Project. 

The institute is free and open to all educators. To sign up, use this registration form.
