Presentation: “Etched in Wood: Cultural Propaganda and New Mexico True”  by Dr. Spencer Herrera Host: Chicano Programs

September 21st 6:15 PM – Health and Social Services Auditorium

The “New Mexico True” tourism campaign can be found in magazines, in airport displays, and billboards. Dr. Herrera compares this marketing plan to the U.S. State Department’s cold war-era documentary film And Now, Miguel (1953), which was designed to show a softer, familial side of the American people. It features the Chávez family who live in the small northern New Mexico village of Los Córdovas, near Taos, where they raise sheep. Over half a century later the propaganda efforts have transitioned from a political agenda to an economic one. It is now New Mexico’s state office of tourism that promotes their “New Mexico True” brand that is geared toward “consumer[s],” not political alliances or cultural connections. As the state tourism website asserts, the purpose of “New Mexico True” is to “seek what is true and push past what we know to be false.” Like the shepherds who carefully tend to their flock, New Mexicans must protect their culture on their terms if it is to endure despite the rapid changes due to growth and technology that threaten their cultural traditions.

Documentary Film Latinos Beyond Reel: Challenging a Media StereotypeHost: Chicano Programs and NMSU Communication Studies Department 

October 12th – 6:00 PM – Health and Human Services Auditorium 

This documentary examines how U.S news and entertainment media portray, and do not portray- Latinos.  Drawing on the insights of Latino scholars, journalists, community leaders, actors, directors, and producers, they uncover a pattern of gross misrepresentation and gross under-representation- a world in which Latinos tend to appear, if at all, as gangsters and Mexican bandits, harlots and prostitutes, drug dealers, etc. The film challenges viewers to think critically about the wide-ranging effects of these media stereotypes and to envision alternative representations more capable of capturing the humanity and diversity of Latinos.  Featuring commentary from: Chon Noriega, Josefina Lopez, Moctesuma Esparza, and others.

The screening will be followed by commentary by Professor Amy Lanasa, Creative Media Institute and Dr. Eric Morgan, Communication Studies
