Writers at Work Features Dundes

Alan Dundes will be the featured writer in the Berkeley Writers at Work series, noon - 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 14, in the Toll Room of Alumni House. Dundes will read from his works and answer questions from the audience.

Dundes, professor of anthropology and folklore, received his B.A. in English from Yale and his Ph.D. in folklore from Indiana University. Dundes has written on subjects as diverse as jokes, games, war, North American Indian folktales and U.S. presidents. He began his career at Berkeley in 1963, in the Department of Anthropology, and received the UC Berkeley Distinguished Teaching Award in 1995.

The Berkeley Writers at Work series provides a forum in which campus writers can discuss all aspects of their writing. The series is free and open to the public. No reservations are needed.

Conference on Asian Pacific Visibility

Asian Pacific students, staff and faculty are invited to attend a conference on "Visibility and Marginality: Examining the Changing

Status of Asian Pacific Americans at Berkeley," from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 16, in Dwinelle Hall.

Participants will explore ways that Asian Pacific Americans, one of Berkeley's most visible racial groups, can become a more integral part of campus life.

Convened by the Asian American Advisory Committee to the Chancellor, the conference takes place ten years after Koyama-Lee Report, a historic report on the status of Asian Americans on campus.

For information or to register online, see ( A box lunch will be provided to those who pre-register by October 8.


In last week's issue, a story on campus recycling stated that File 13, the campus' student-oriented recycling collective, no longer provided paper recycling service. This is incorrect. File 13 picks up white paper from high-volume locations around campus. Those needing a white paper bin may call 642-4895.
