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

Migrantes, Mexico and the United States: Lessons from History and Current Challenges

2 pm

Millions of Mexicans have migrated to the United States over the past 120 years—several million without documents and subject to deportation since the 1970s, and over two million agricultural workers known as braceros in the years after World War II. But net Mexican migration has virtually stopped since the great recession of 2008, and has been replaced by Central Americans fleeing political violence migrating through Mexico and across the border into the United States. At the same time, the United States has adopted a much more muscular policyto stop migration at the border. This presentation analyzes the historical arc of these migrations and argues that history affords some lessons about what to expect from current policies.

Manuel García y Griego is Associate Professor of History and Chicana and Chicano Studies at the University of New Mexico. Previously he has held faculty positions at El Colegio de México (Mexico City), the University of California, Irvine, and the University of Texas at Arlington. He has written widely on Mexican migration and bilateral relations.
