Doctoral Fellow Presentation on Archival Research Project for Academic Year 2019-2020

The Parral Archive

María (Cony) Márquez Sándoval was the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College Doctoral Fellow for the 2019-2020 academic year. In addition to teaching in the History Department, Cony aided the Center's archives by working with the Parral Archive (El Archivo de Hidalgo del Parral, 1631-1821) materials. She was able to identify documents from the Spanish colonial period that related to the Spanish expansion into the Four Corners Region. She translated these documents from Spanish into English, and we will be uploading the Spanish documents and their English translations side by side on the Center’s website in the near future. In this YouTube presentation Cony describes the project.

Even though the Center of Southwest Studies remains closed we have explored new ways to keep you informed and engaged through Facebook, Instagram, and emails. We now have our own YouTube channel where you can see our interviews with the two curators of the PIVOT exhibit.

Week of April 27th: Director's Letter

A Message from Shelby Tisdale

I hope my message this week finds you well and staying safe as the Center of Southwest Studies remains closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are planning a number of ways to stay virtually connected as we continue to work from our homes. In the meantime, I thought I would share another story about one of my past experiences with you.
