Title: Education For a New Race: Making Whites and Schooling the Mexican in Greater Juan Crow

Brief description: What has been the historical relationship of public schools and education policy in creating race; in creating Whites? By looking at the experiences of ethnic Mexican communities in the Mountain West—Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, and especially Wyoming—in the first half of the 20th Century(1917-1956), I argue that education policy was the apotheosis of racialization finalizing the boundaries of White and Non-Whites, specifically the Mexican and White races. In other words, schools made and were the architects of the White race. 


The next talk in this series is on Mar. 10th with Professor Helepololei (SOAN).
