2019 Lacy Family Distinguished Lecturer

Indiana has the 21st largest Latino population in the nation – in fact, they make up 6% of our population. Join the conversation about how Latinos have shaped Indiana history over the past century and how current politics affect the community in the Midwest today.

Dr. Sujey Vega will talk about the recuerdos – memories – of Hoosier Latinos and the relationships between Mexican and non-Mexican residents in small-town Indiana. Nicole Martinez-LeGrand, IHS multicultural collections coordinator, will lead a moderated discussion tying in Vega’s work with our ongoing Latino Collecting Initiative.

Free. Registration encouraged.

Dr. Sujey Vega is an associate professor of Women and Gender Studies and affiliate faculty member in the School of Transborder Studies and Religious Studies at Arizona State University. Her book, Latino Heartland: Of Borders and Belonging in the Midwest, focuses on the relations between Mexican Hoosiers and non-Mexican Hoosiers in Indiana. Her most recent work looks at the role of Latina women in the LDS church.
