Research Guide for Seeing Los Angeles: Exploring the InVisible City

This research guide is designed to support the March 30, 2009 Visions and Voices event, Seeing Los Angeles: Exploring the InVisible City, organized by the USC Libraries and the Los Angeles Institute for the Humanities, and co-sponsored by El Centro Chicano.

In the vast geography of Southern California, whole communities disappear between freeway exits. As these neighborhoods and histories are rendered invisible, we must ask how many Angelenos actually see the city in which they live.

Moderated by photographer Aaron Paley, this discussion will offer new ways of looking at a city that few residents ever experience in its entirety. The discussion will also feature writer and Lakewood city official D.J. Waldie, USC professor of American Studies and Ethnicity George Sanchez, and award-winning poet Marisela Norte.
