AZ Speaks: Landscapes of Migration in the AZ-Sonora Borderland
July 13 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
An in-depth look at historical and contemporary patterns of south-north migration through Arizona/Sonora borderland region, from ancient Hohokam trade routes to Spanish colonizers, to contemporary migrants—both documented and undocumented. While in some cases migration routes and patterns have changed over time, in other cases they have largely stayed the same. This talk is intended to increase awareness of Arizona’s south-north connections and how they shape our cultural landscape.
