Event Coordination

The department's Events Coordinator serves three core functions:

  1. Coordinating the overall production of History-led events;
  2. Providing consultation and assistance for events sponsored by department faculty and students;
  3. Creating a set of self-help resources to improve the planning process and ensure compliance with policies ranging from campus, health and safety regulations, to federal law.

While this service does not provide end-to-end planning for all events affiliated with the department or its varied population, we are available to offer suggestions to make your event a success. Please email Events Coordinator Amber Lawrence to schedule a time to discuss your event.

Publicizing History Events

History faculty, students, and affiliates may request to have events publicized through the department's website, calendars, email lists, and postings. Please email detailed event information to history@berkeley.edu at least two weeks before the event.

Hard copies of posters and flyers should be delivered to the department's main office, 3229 Dwinelle Hall. Please do not post anything in the department's common areas without first consulting department staff.


The department's events held in Dwinelle Hall are accessible for people who use wheelchairs or have mobility issues. The nearest wheelchair ramp to the department is located at the Ishi Court entrace on the north side of Dwinelle Hall. Upon entering, you may proceed by elevator to Level C (for 3335 and 3401 Dwinelle) or to Level G (for 370 Dwinelle).

Individuals or groups with additional accessibility concerns may contact Amber Lawrence at history-events@berkeley.edu or (510) 642-1488.
