Trinity University Professor Arturo Madrid speaks on his book about a Hispanic Protestant family in Catholic New Mexico.
Arturo Madrid, Distinguished Professor of the Humanities, Trinity University will speak on "In The Country of Empty Crosses: The Story of a Hispano Protestant Family in Catholic New Mexico."
The La Canoa Legacy Series features talks by Hispanic/Latino academic and community researchers with long-standing and distinguished records of research and teaching about New Mexico and the region. Like la canoa—referring in New Mexican Spanish to several utilitarian objects used to receive and transport people and resources and thus provide a service to the community—these talks are meant to serve the community by presenting new or overlooked information about our region to interested audiences. We want them to transport us to new understandings of our region and its rich cultural and historical inheritance, and to move the conversation back and forth in rich dialogue between presenters and audience members.
