“All Over New Mexico: Dale Bellamah and the Reshaping of Las Cruces’ Built Environment” by Jerry Wallace

Join us on Thursday, March 10 at 1 pm, at the Branigan Cultural Center, for a History Notes lecture by Jerry Wallace entitled, “All Over New Mexico: Dale Bellamah and the Reshaping of Las Cruces’ Built Environment.”

Jerry D. Wallace is a candidate for a PH.D. from the University of New Mexico in environmental history and historic preservation where his work focuses on human-animal relationships and the built environment in the twentieth century. His dissertation examines neighborhood identities in the early Cold War era in which he explores how class, gender, animals, age and the trans-local have shaped built communities in the American West, Southwest, and the borderlands. He currently teaches at New Mexico State University.

This lecture is part of the Latino Americans: 500 years of history programming series. Latino Americans: 500 Years of History has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.

History Notes, monthly lectures on historical topics, take place on the second Thursday of each month at 1 pm. Lectures are free and open to the public. The 2015 History Notes lecture series features topics related to Hispanic American Histories and Cultures of the Southwest. Please check our webpage or Facebook for a full listing of these and other Branigan Cultural Center public programs.
