This multi-media presentation focuses on the cultural encounters between Spanish, Aztec and African peoples that formed the Mexican Americas. Using the perspective of the ‘borderlands’ as his interpretive lens, Carrasco will narrate stories of the ‘conquest of New Spain’, the bilingualism of La Malinche, the apparitions of the Virgin of Guadalupe at the indigenous site of Tepeyac, and the growing devotions for Dia de los Muertos in Latino cultures.
