Membership Lecture, The New Mexico History Museum Auditorium
Thursday, February 21, 2013, 6:30–7:30 pm, Free for SAR members • $10 for nonmembers
Four “big ideas” swept across the Southwest borderlands of North America in the thousand years that span the emergence of social complexity in the Ancestral Puebloan world and the consolidation of the Spanish colony of New Mexico. Through evangelical methods, each sought to effect a dynamic reorganization of popular religious, cultural, and political beliefs. In this illustrated lecture, Dr. James Brooks explores how these “big ideas” continue to resonate in regional memories and life ways.
