Marking the Divide: Photographs and Monuments along the U.S./Mexico Border

April 17, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

How do we visualize the border? For over 100 years the U.S./Mexico borderline, and the monuments
that mark it, has fascinated photographers. In this illustrated talk, historian Katherine Morrissey explores
this question as she shares border images taken over the long 20th century.

Katherine G. Morrissey is Associate Professor of History at the University of Arizona where she teaches courses in western U.S., Arizona & the Southwest, U.S. cultural and environmental history. She received her Ph.D. in American Studies from Yale University. Among her publications: Picturing Arizona: The Photographic Record of the 1930s, Mental Territories: Mapping the Inland Empire and a forthcoming co-edited book, US/Mexico Border Spaces: Arts, Built Environments, and Landscapes. Her interest in the relationship between photographs and landscapes has been the focus of a series of research projects, including her current work which she will be sharing in her public talk.
