Dr. Gonzalez holds a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in Anthropology and a BA in Chicano Studies from UC Berkeley.

Does the program provide housing?
Unfortunately, the center does not provide housing. Options listed through the University are available here: http://summer.berkeley.edu/student-services/student-housing. Please note that the workshop is not a summer course, and so you cannot stay in the university residence halls. Summer sublets are plentiful; many are listed on this UCB site and other rental listing sites.
International participants are welcome, though you are responsible for getting a visa. You should apply for a B1 visa: "attend a scientific, educational, professional, or business convention or conference." Or, if you also want to add tourism to your stay, apply for a B1/B2 visa.
Application Process and Deadline
Applications are considered on a rolling basis and space is limited. The first review date is April 3, and applicants who apply by that date will be notified by April 14. After that point, applicants will be notified within two weeks of applying.
