War Torn Californios: The Civil Wars of Antonio and Porfirio Jimeno
7:30 p.m.–9 p.m.
Jesse Alemán, professor of English at the University of New Mexico, discusses the lives and letters of the Jimeno brothers, whose coming of age in the years before the U.S. Civil War demonstrates that the process of becoming Latino in the United States is a story of uneven assimilation, embattled acculturation, and divided loyalties to family, nation, language, and place.
The event will be held online via Zoom. Zoom link will be sent to attendees in registration confirmation email. This event will be recorded.
This is the Ray Allen Billington Lecture in the History of the American West.
