Guerrieri Academic Commons Assembly Hall.
Dr. Miguel Levario, of Texas Tech University and author of Militarizing the Border: When Mexicans Became the Enemy, examines the conflictual context of the U.S.-Mexico border to understand race relations in the borderlands during the early decades of the 20th century.
A review of events, including the Mexican revolution, and the setting acts as a lens through which the complex struggle between authorities, the populace and the underlying racial tones of conflict may be understood then and now.
