The histories and cultures of the regions and peoples now Mexico and the United States are linked in the indigenous past, in colonial formations, in national constructions - and in the present era of migrations, NAFTA, and globalization. This conference assembles leading scholars of New Spain in North America, of the interaction of Mexico and the United States in the era of national formations and transformations in the 19th century, and of border interactions, labor relations, and transnational communities in the 20th century. Each presenter will offer a vision of key aspects of the Hispanic and Mexican presence in the formation and recent history of the United States. Scholars regularly discuss and debate U.S.-Mexican relations to better understand Mexico's history, culture, and contemporary challenges. Our goal is to re-think Mexican-U.S. relations to better understand U.S. history and culture, and the challenges of a rapidly integrating North America.
