From Vision to Reality: Making Borderlands of Southern Colorado
Thursday, October 4, 2018 | 6:00PM — 8:00PM
Join Dr. Charles Nicholas Saenz for this first installment of the Borderlands of Southern Colorado lecture series, co-hosted by Pueblo Archaeological and Historical Society. Museum exhibits don't just happen. The best are based on current scholarship. Saenz consulted with the Community Museums of History Colorado as a lead scholar for the Borderlands of Southern Colorado exhibit. He recently obtained tenure at Adams State University as an associate professor of history and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on historiography and historical methodology, world civilizations, European and Latin American history and Latino studies. He also serves as board president of the Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area, an affiliated organization of the National Park Service that promotes the rich history and culture of Alamosa, Conejos and Costilla counties, and on the board of the San Luis Valley Historical Association.
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.
