He will be joined by professors Greg Castillo (UC Berkeley), moderator Ross Elfline (Carleton College), Simon Sadler (UC Davis), and Felicity Scott (Columbia University)—noted scholars on the countercultural production of the period and contributors to the exhibition catalogue—for presentations, a panel discussion, and an audience Q&A.
