USC is hosting scientists, researchers, writers, artists and historians in a day of conversation on what lies beneath Los Angeles: earthquakes, tunnels, fossils and oil, and more.
Speakers and panels will cover LA’s underground science and ecosystem, the city’s subterranean infrastructure, local military history, and its edgy arts and culture.
The conference is called “Under L.A.: Subterranean Stories,” and it’s open to the public Saturday, 9am-4:30pm at USC’s Doheny Memorial Library.
