including our new lunchtime series, The Loft Hour, to showcase new arts faculty; a four-day
visit by Artist-In-Residence Tanya Lukin Linklater; an edgy Internet bus tour; and a raft of
poetry readings, craft talks, and music events. Read on for the details of upcoming events and

New Initiative: The Loft Hour

Conversations with Berkeley’s new cohort of Art Faculty

Elevate your lunch break with The Loft Hour, a new year-long series that invites new arts faculty to riff on their work over lunch, in an informal conversation moderated by an ARC-affiliated faculty member. Join us in welcoming our esteemed new colleagues in music, history of art, film & media, TDPS, art practice, and English. Hosted by the Arts Research Center in our beautiful loft space, and supported by the Dean’s Office of the Division of Arts and Humanities.
