The Center for Race & Gender (CRG) was established as a result of the 1999 Ethnic Studies student strike. Since then, CRG has organized many forums, conferences, symposia and distinguished lectures on a wide range of interdisciplinary research topics connecting to race and gender. Because of CRG's unique history on campus and our significant body of video and audio recordings of events over the years, we would like to better organize our archive to make them more accessible and useful for ongoing race/gender research.


The student will be invited to participate in meetings with the staff researchers at the Center to develop this project. The student will lead the development of a catalogue system based on race/gender research keywords to better organize CRG's multimedia archive as well as participate in the archiving of the 1969 UC Berkeley student movement, the Third World Liberation Front.
