“New Directions in Arizona History” Symposium 2021

This is a symposium to mark the release of a special anniversary issue of the Journal of Arizona History. I was invited to submit and co-author with Dr. Grace Peña Delgado an article, “Beyond Border Spectacle: Oral History and Everyday Meaning in Chinese Mexican Tucson,” featuring my oral history work with the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center. Our article is currently available on ProjectMuse. But, if you don’t have access to this database but would like to read it, please feel free to email me at prmamart@ucsc.edu

If you have a couple of hours to spare and want to listen to a riveting talk about Arizona-Sonora borderlands history, please enjoy the recording of the talk below!

With Arizona at the center of many national issues today, from immigration to climate change, what can historians do to ensure that Arizona’s past is better understood? What do we know about Arizona history today, and what do we need historians to study further? Join the Arizona Historical Society for a conversation about the future of Arizona history with some of the top historians working in the field today. All of the panelists published essays in a recent special issue of the Journal of Arizona History (Autumn/Winter 2020), which is available digitally on Project MUSE: https://muse.jhu.edu/issue/43395.
