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.

A journey of 10,000 miles: NMSU professors to share tales of travels in China

Elvira Masson, a college professor in the History Department, and Margaret Goehring, associate professor in the Department of Art, took 10 NMSU students and 10 NMSU faculty and Las Cruces community members on the March 2017 FLIP trip.

The lecture kicks off the College of Arts and Sciences’ fall 2017 “Global Connections” series from 5-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11 at the College of Health and Social Services Annex Auditorium, Room 101A.

The purpose of the “Global Connections” lecture series is to provide an opportunity for members of the campus and surrounding community to listen and ask questions of NMSU professors about the kind of global first-hand experience they might otherwise never encounter.

“We were exploring the confluence of culture and religion that is very characteristic of the farthest west provinces of China,” Goehring said.

Specifically, the trip focused on the Silk Roads, a massive intercontinental travel network dating back to at least the first century B.C. In addition to commerce, this network provided such disparate populations at the Tibetans, the Mongolians, the various Muslim communities, and the Han Chinese to experience each other’s cultures.

Documentary Film Latinos Beyond Reel: Challenging a Media Stereotype” Host: 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

A Panel Discussion Moderated by Professor Nancy Oretskin, JD Panelists include Molly Molloy, Jessica Miles, JD and Brenda Villalpando, JD

 

Dr. Nancy Oretskin received her J.D. from the Thomas Backus School of Law at Case Western Reserve University in 1988 and joined the faculty at NMSU in 1989. She teaches courses on business law, and negotiation and conflict resolution. Her primary research area since 2010 has been on immigration and asylum law.

 Molly Molloy is a research librarian and border and Latin American specialist at the NMSU Library. She started the Frontera List (more than 1,200 subscribers) to distribute news and analysis about the U.S.-Mexico border region to scholars, activists, and journalists. When Ju?rez became the most violent city in the world in 2008, her work to document the violence became a foundation to Charles Bowden’s book, Murder City: Ciudad Ju?rez and the Global Economy’s New Killing Fields (Nation Books, 2010)<http://www.amazon.com/Murder-City-Ciudad-Economys-Killing/dp/1568586450/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417984751&sr=8-1&keywords=murder+city+charles+bowden>.

She translated and edited the life story of a Juarez cartel killer and Chihuahua state cop, El Sicario: The Autobiography of a Mexican Assassin (Nation Books, 2011)<http://www.amazon.com/El-Sicario-Autobiography-Mexican-Assassin/dp/1568586582/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_y> Her articles have appeared a wide variety of publications, and in addition to research and writing, Molly provides expert testimony in political asylum cases for people forced to flee Mexico due to persecution and violence.

 

Attorney Jessica Miles is an associate at Noble & Vrapi, P.A.  Jessica graduated Cum Laude from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 2013, where she earned Clinical Honors and the Jerrold L. Walden Memorial Award for her commitment to social justice.   A substantial portion of Jessica’s practice is dedicated to asylum-related work- through casework and advocacy.  She also is a founding member of the Borderland immigration Council (BIC), a transnational coalition of immigration advocates who document and track civil and human rights abuses on the border, with a particular focus on asylum seekers in El Paso and New Mexico.

 

Brenda M. Villalpando is a partner at Villalpando Law Firm, PLLC.   Brenda is admitted to the State Bar of California and her practice is limited to Immigration Law.  She graduated from the University of California at Davis, where she majored in Political Science. Brenda received her Juris Doctorate degree from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California.  She is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and is a founding member of the El Paso LGBTQI Bar Association.
