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.
