by Dr. Deena Gonzalez (Professor, Department of Chicano/a Studies, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles).
Dr. Gonzalez is the author of “Refusing the Favor: The Spanish-Mexican Women of Santa Fe, 1820-1880”and co-editor-in chief of the four volume “Encyclopedia of Latinos and Latinas in the United States” (both published by Oxford University Press).
This public lecture will take place at the University Museum of New Mexico State University, located in Kent Hall on the NMSU campus at the corner of University Avenue and Solano Drive. This lecture is funded by the Southwest and Border Cultures Institute and is a public program associated with two of the museum’s current exhibits: “Enchanting the Nation: New Mexico and the United States” and “Sagrado: A Photopoetics across the Chicano/a Homeland”.
I’m glad you posted about this. I’m hoping to go. Who else is going?
I’m going to try.
I just read “Refusing the Favor” for my comprehensive exams. I love the kind of women’s cultural history she does in that, bringing women’s voices and lives to the forefront. I wish I could attend this lecture. If anyone goes let me know how it is!
Jenny, if I can go, I’ll do a write up on it and post it here.
This looks great and I wish I could make it. I would love to read your comments, Jared, if you are able to make it. I have my NM History students read an article about women in NM in the 18th centuryby Deena Gonzalez that is really great. It would be nice to tell them something about her presentation.
