 Second session of Palimpsest of Cultures, the NEH-sponsored project that will bring K-12 educators to the Arizona-Sonora Borderlands for one week in summer 2022 to study the history, arts, environments, and plural cultures of the region in the context of past habitation and present conditions of tri-national (U.S., Mexico, Native Nations) coexistence. Given current conversations about the nature of the US-Mexico border and global migration more generally, the Arizona-Sonora Borderlands present a compelling and real-time learning-lab in layered histories, cultures, arts, ecologies, and current events of the region. The week will unfold chronologically to track human impact in this space and place, from ancestral and modern indigenous presence to Spanish colonialism, Anglo settlement, and the cumulative environmental and political effects of the diverse cultures in the 21st century Arizona-Sonora Borderlands.
