    History of Mexico"

    Featuring Dr. Edward Slack, History

    Dr. Jerry Garcia, Chicano Education Studies

    Dr. Joseph Lenti, History

     
    Three historians examine Mexico's longstanding role as a place of global exchange and cultural fusion from diverse perspectives. Dr. Edward Slack focuses on Asia's influence on colonial New Spain via his investigation of the Spanish galleons that sailed from Manila to Acapulco annually from 1565-1815.  Dr. Jerry García keeps attention on the "Orientalization" of Mexico by examining the flow of Japanese into the country during the first half of the twentieth century.  Dr. Joseph Lenti analyzes the methods used by post-1917 politicians and archaeologists to unearth knowledge of the indigenous past, politicize it, and package Aztec iconography into a politically empowering and sellable version of national identity.

    Lunch will be provided.
