2012 Bisson Lecture in the Humanities

Dr. Jesse Alemán will give the 2012 Bisson Lecture in the Humanities

Join us April 27, 2012, for the third annual Bisson Lecture in the Humanities. This year, Dr. Jesse Alemán (UNM) will speak on “Wars of Rebellion: US Hispanic Writings and their American Civil Wars.”

Dr. Alemán’s scholarship takes up the literary histories and national identities forged after the 1846-1848 U.S.-Mexico War. In “Wars of Rebellion,” he will examine the life and writings of nineteenth-century US Hispanics participants–who underwent their own “civil wars” of identity conflict in terms of race, religion, and transnational belonging.

Join us Friday, April 27th, at 5:30 in the Lee Reception room for light refreshments. The lecture will begin at 6:00pm.
