This is the seventh episode in our series, which focuses on housing insecurity in California. This episode was created by two CCEP’s 2020-21 student fellows, Octavio Cuevas and Victoria Torres. As I mentioned in past episodes, each year CCEP recruits a new group of student fellows, whose coursework and research focuses on the year’s theme.
For Octavio and Victoria’s episode on “housing insecurity”, they offer us a unique listening experience. It begins with their own meditations on the meaning of home and how housing access has shaped their lives. Then, they interview a friend and fellow student who has experienced homelessness. The student details their struggle and how it impacted their ability to learn and succeed academically.
This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit calhum.org.
