Over six weeks, participants will read short stories and view films of works by major authors who have influenced public perception of the Borderlands region of the southwestern US, in the 20th century. The readings and films discussed in this series represent the by-now established local recognition of a distinct ‘borderlands culture,’ an emergent admixture of Spanish, Mexican, Mestizo, Anglo and Indigenous cultures, and the socio-political forces working for or against its amalgamation into a coherent new culture of its own. Participants will meet on Zoom to discuss themes and topics addressed including cultural actualization, spirituality, religious and folk customs, gender issues, institutional support mechanisms, and historic and contemporary racial stereotypes.
