Administrative History

The Pacific Regional Humanities Center (PRHC) was an initiative funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities in 2002 and overseen by the UC Davis Humanities Institute. Created to generate and broker humanities research and public programs for the Pacific United States and Territories--California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Marianas, the PRHC emphasized the study of "place" in its many dimensions. From 2003 through 2006, the PRHC worked primarily on oral history projects focusing on Angel Island and the Sutter Buttes. In 2007 the PRHC was reconceptualized as the California Cultures Initiative.

Scope and Content

This small collection contains DVDs and videocassettes chronicling PRHC projects and events. Also included is the PRHC implementation proposal that was submitted to the National Endowment for the Humanities.
