Matt O’Hara: “The History of the Future in Mexico”
April 27, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Center for Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
Matt O’Hara, History, UCSC
“The History of the Future in Mexico”
Historians of Latin America have spent much energy studying historical legacies. The notion that “the past weighs heavily on the present” is a standard frame for historical analysis. Stepping outside this paradigm, Professor O’Hara’s book project examines how Mexicans thought about, planned for, and accessed the future from the mid-colonial period into the early republic.
