Gómez’s path breaking work reveals how the construction of Mexicans as an American racial group proved central to the larger process of restructuring the American racial order.



In both the historic record and the popular imagination, the story of westward expansion in America has been characterized by notions of annexation rather than colonialism, of opening rather than conquering, and of settling unpopulated lands rather than displacing existing populations.



Renowned writer, historian, and human rights activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz will introduce Gómez.
