Al Young, California’s Poet Laureate Emeritus is the Keynote Speaker for The First Annual Center for Research in the Humanities and Arts (CHRA) Graduate Student conference, which will be held at the campus of the University of California, Merced, on April 12-13, 2013. From Monadism to Nomadism: An Hybrid Approach to Cultural Productions will focus on the intersection and interplay of cultural studies, the social sciences, and the humanities and encouraging the exploration of various theoretical frameworks, case studies and fieldwork, and research.

Al Young is California’s Poet Laureate Emeritus. Born in Mississippi, he held a variety of colorful jobs (folksinger, lab aide, disk jockey, medical photographer, clerk typist, employment counselor) before graduating with honors from U.C. Berkeley with a degree in Spanish. He has been described as “an educator and a man with a passion for the Arts” and “an original American voice”. Coming from San Francisco, we are honored and thrilled to have a scholar and artist with such a diverse voice and esteemed reputation join us for our first conference in this series.
