La Canoa: John Mraz “The Braceros Program and the Hermanos Mayo”

2 pm

Please join us as Dr. Mraz examines the Hermanos Mayo, Spanish-Mexican photojournalists whose images of the braceros make up the current NHCC exhibit, Braceros: Photographed by the Hermanos Mayo. The photojournalist collective knew what it meant to emigrate, as their story began during one of the modern world’s great conflagrations: the Spanish Civil War. With the defeat of the Republic in 1939, the Mayo came to Mexico where they worked for more than 40 periodicals, creating an enormous archive of some five million negatives. The Hermanos Mayo’s photographs of the braceros are important for what they show us about these migratory workers and what they tell us about the perspectives of these graphic reporters. It is important to applaud the artfulness of the Mayo collective while recognizing that particular social realities had to exist before they could be reproduced in photographs. As Julio Mayo said, “Photography has its creative part, but within reality.”

John Mraz is Research Professor at the Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades, Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (Mexico) and National Researcher III. He has published more than 200 articles, book chapters, and essays in Europe, Latin America, and the United States on the uses of photography, cinema, and video in recounting history. Among his books are Photographing the Mexican Revolution; Looking for Mexico: Modern Visual Culture and National Identity; Nacho López, Mexican Photographer, and Uprooted: Braceros in the Hermanos Mayo Lens. He has directed award-winning documentaries, and curated many international photographic exhibits.

And don’t forget to stop in the History and Literary Arts building to see the Braceros exhibit photographed by The Hermanos Mayo.

This event is free and open to the public

Surviving Microaggressions Workshop (Rental)

10 am – 5 pm
Domenici Education Building, Room 122/124

When you are often the only person who identifies the way you do, entering a room can be extremely uncomfortable. Now imagine that a joke is then made on your behalf. Poking fun at your natural hair, or teasing your personality characteristics because they reject the stereotype associated with your group affiliation. “Not being black enough,” “Acting white,” or having your native language skills criticized by friends and family are often commonplace. These statements or questions are often a way to challenge our belonging or even our presence in certain spaces. This can happen at school, work or even at the grocery store. Learn how to work through these situations and what to say when microaggressions appear.
$40 Early Bird Registration, $80 Groups of 3 & $60 Late Registration
(fees not included in the price of the registration)
