What do we mean when we talk about “Hispanic history” in the US? Juan de Oñate’s arrival in New Mexico in 1598, or the Pueblo Revolt in 1680? Colonization or resistance? Or both? Over the past few years, there has been a growing public debate about what is – or should be – publicly commemorated and what has been left out of the official version of the nation’s story. Such questions are at the heart of El Norte and this lecture will consider where the Hispanic past sits in the larger public memory of the United States, and how it has been celebrated – or not – in more recent times.
