¡Globalquerque is going virtual this year with a very special Cross-Cultural Crossover program on Wednesday, September 30th starting at 7pm on the ¡Globalquerque! Facebook page.

Virtual Reading and Discussion: Michael Tapia, Gangs of the El Paso–Juárez Borderland: A History

September 30

6 pm
Bookworks Virtual on Zoom: RSVP for this online event: https://www.bkwrks.com/mike-tapia

Presented by Bookworks, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and the University of New Mexico Press, this thought-provoking book by Dr. Mike Tapia examines gang history in the region encompassing west Texas, southern New Mexico, and northern Chihuahua, Mexico. Known as the El Paso–Juárez borderland region, the area, spanning 130 miles from east to west, contains more than three million people. From the badlands—the historically notorious eastern Valle de Juárez—to the Puerto Palomas port of entry at Columbus, New Mexico, this area has become more militarized and politicized than ever before. Dr.Tapia examines this region by exploring a century of historical developments through a criminological lens and by studying the diverse subcultures on both sides of the law.

The first year of this unprecedented convening of Latinx writers emphasizes community-building, connection, and experiential collaboration–determined by a national survey of Latinx writers who expressed what they want from a first conference of this kind. The first event will also determine the shape and content of annual Latinx convenings in the future–an undertaking organizers want to co-create together.
