Lecture Description

This lecture offers a broad swath of Spanish language archives that undergraduates, organizations, or academics can use to understand the history of the United States through the eyes of an ethnic minority. These sources offer a glimpse at the way that Spanish language sources can help to explain how new immigrants and those who were enveloped by the United States through the U.S.-Mexican War thought about their citizenship, the broader U.S. community, and others in the Spanish-speaking community. There are regional distinctions to analyze and lots of opportunities to understand how translation may have led to some concepts being lost in translation when they were conveyed to the Spanish-speaking community.
