ASU’s New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences has teamed with the Litchfield Park Historical Society and Agua Fria High School to produce a video documentary that will premier at the historical society’s 9th annual Founders’ Day event, March 27, in Litchfield Park.
Gloria Cuadraz, an associate professor in the New College Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies, says the collaboration speaks to ASU’s commitment to social embeddedness. “My philosophy is that being ‘socially embedded’ in the community should ultimately be about working with and empowering the community to learn the skills, obtains the resources, and proceed in a manner that advances the mission of the organization. As a scholar exploring issues belonging to the community, I also end up empowered with the intellectual vibrancy and the rich relationships formed out of the partnership.”
“The Historic Sites and Sacred Places” of Litchfield Park will be shown twice during the March 27 celebration. For more information on the event, click here.
