It's been an eventful week for UC Berkeley. On campus, students protested tuition increases. In Sacramento on Tuesday, University of California President Janet Napolitano announced a plan to cap non-resident enrollment at UC Berkeley and UCLA to preserve slots for Californians. We'll talk to UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks about the ongoing budget tensions and debates over the university's mission. We'll also talk to the internationally renowned historian about his new book, "Autobiography of an Archive," which examines the evolution of the study of history since the 1970s.
