Mexican Food Along the Borderlands (That Even Extend to Colorado)
Thursday, October 18, 2018 | 6:00PM — 8:00PM
Join writer Gustavo Arellano for another installment in our Borderlands of Southern Colorado lecture series. Mexican food in the United States is popularly thought of as a static thing that's either "authentic" or "fake." But the reality is far more complex—and delicious! Gustavo Arellano, writer of the syndicated "Ask a Mexican!" column and author of Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, gives a talk about the history of Mexican food in the United States, with an emphasis on how Mexican food evolved in Colorado. He might even eat a Slopper while he's in town!
The stories told in the Borderlands of Southern Colorado exhibit are getting richer. Join authors, artists, scholars, and activists from around the country this fall for the Borderlands of Southern Colorado lecture series as they deepen discussions an complicate narratives on various Borderlands topics. All talks are free and open to the public.
This series is sponsored by Colorado State University-Pueblo. Talks at Fort Garland Museum & Cultural Center are further sponsored by the Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area.
