Photographs & Monuments Along the Border

Presentation: Marking the Divide: Photographs and Monuments along the U.S./Mexico Border, by Katherine Morrissey.
How do we visualize the border? For over 100 years–from the 1890s International Boundary Commission photographs to tourist snapshots to re-photography projects–the U.S./Mexico borderline, and the monuments that mark it, has fascinated photographers. In this illustrated talk, historian Katherine Morrissey, University of Arizona, explores this question as she shares border images taken over the long 20th century. Katherine G. Morrissey is Associate Professor of History at the University of Arizona where she teaches courses in western U.S., Arizona & the Southwest, U.S. cultural and environmental history. $7.50 includes admission to tour the Park.
