Celebrate bilingualism and New Mexican Spanish

November 8

5 pm to 7 pm

Did you know?

… Spanish was spoken in NM before English was.
… when talking about your parents in NM Spanish, mi dad is preferred over mi papá, but mi mamá is preferred over mi mom.
… as well as widespread borrowings like dad, bilinguals will spontaneously integrate an English word perfectly into Spanish grammar, as in unas carrots grandotas.

Does Spanglish mean mixing up languages? Code-switching is the topic of a new book Bilingualism in the Community (Torres Cacoullos & Travis, Cambridge University Press, 2018). This exciting research answers that question with a resounding: no. It shows that, contrary to popular belief, bilinguals are skilled at switching back and forth between languages, while keeping their distinct grammars intact. In NM, Spanish and English are juntos pero no revueltos. 

This reception brings together community members and scholars of bilingualism, to launch this book and showcase UNM student projects and the Spanish as a Heritage Language program. Join in this celebration of bilingualism and New Mexican Spanish with: Eliseo “CheoTorres, Simón Romero, Garland Bills, Joan Bybee, Daniel Abeyta, the authors, and others.

Hosted by Damián Vergara Wilson and Naomi Shin,

Sponsored by: UNM Departments of Spanish and Portuguese, Linguistics, Latin American and Iberian Institute, and the NHCC

Opening Reception for NM Hometown Heroes

5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

The New Mexico Hometown Heroes: Hispanic Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients exhibit is a tribute to the six Hispanic Congressional Medal of Honor recipients who have received the highest honor that the United States government bestows for acts of valor and heroism. It celebrates not only their stories of service but their connections to New Mexico: Private Joseph Martínez (WWII), Private José Valdez (WWII), Daniel Fernandez (Vietnam War), Master Sergeant Alejandro Ruíz (WWII), Chief Warrant Officer Louis Rocco (Vietnam War) Master Sergeant Leroy Petry (Operation Enduring Freedom).

This exhibition of photographs, narratives, and ephemera allows us to reflect on the sacrifices of those who served, and those who follow in their footsteps.

November 10

1:00 pm

Join us to hear from artists, Autumn Chacon, Aziza Murray, Ehren Kee Natay, and Nani Chacon (and possibly a couple more), about the roles that identity plays in their experiences as artists —what shows POC artists are invited to participate in, expectations and/or assumptions about what their work is about, whether they feel their work plays an important role in these conversations, what it’s like working with museums and galleries, etc. They will also have an opportunity to speak about their work in Because It’s Time.
