Latin@ Studies Lecture Series

Professor Martha Chew Sanchez will be giving a talk at the Latin@ Studies Lecture Series at Connecticut College.

Friday, March 28th,2014 at 6:30 pm. in the Charles Chu Room, Shain Library.

LA Frontera- Cultural Identities on the Mexican-U.S. Borderland.

Martha is Associate Professor in the Global Studies Department at St. Lawrence University

This talk will explore the cultural expressions derived from the interactions among people on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border.  The goal is to understand the different ways in which immigration, drug smuggling and transnational industries affect the everyday lives of border-landers through historical and critical approaches to the cultural expressions (music, images, or other forms of discourse) that have served as mechanisms to mediate the contradictions arising out of the border.
