Please join NEH Division of Preservation and Access and the Serial and Government Publications Division at the Library of Congress for a very special event on September 14, 2020, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM ET.

In the plenary address at the annual conference of the National Digital Newspaper Program, Dr. Celeste González de Bustamante will present “Crossing Borders, Counter-cartographies: Contemplations and Collaborations Using Historic Newspapers.”

Professor of Journalism and director of the Center for Border & Global Journalism at the University of Arizona, Dr. González de Bustamante will discuss how research involving historical newspapers, including those in Chronicling America, contributes to better understanding of the Mexico-United States borderlands and beyond. Her talk will consider how interdisciplinary and cross-border collaborations with libraries, librarians, and media scholars can result in valuable experiential learning opportunities for students. She will discuss the results of student-centered research projects whose underlying aim is to create “counter-cartographies” of journalism and borderlands history.

Sponsored by the NEH and the Library of Congress, this talk is free and open to the public.
