A Message from the Director

June 25, 2020

As I wrote in my last message the Center of Southwest Studies has experienced a severe budget cut due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s health and economic impacts on our community and Fort Lewis College. We have no idea how long this pandemic will last and the overall consequences of it are still not fully understood.

A Message from the Director

June 18, 2020

I hope my message this week finds you and your loved ones staying healthy and safe during these challenging times.

As you have probably heard or read in the newspaper the Center of Southwest Studies was not spared from the budget cuts made at Fort Lewis College. The Center staff has been furloughed two days per week for the next year. Given our limited hours and the ongoing impacts of the pandemic we will not be able to reopen with the regular hours as we had in the past.

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.
