Tue, Dec 12, 2017, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Was Popé the leader of the Pueblo Revolt?  Were there other leaders?  Until recently, with few exceptions, historians left this question unstudied.  Stephanie Beninato will examine the documents within a cooperative model of Pueblo leadership so we can appreciate this event and its enormous consequences on the cultural landscape of New Mexico.

VanAnn Moore brings to life entertainers of the old West

Sopranos and Six-Shooters: Great Ladies of the Old Western Theatre

Wed, Dec 13, 2017, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Inn and Spa at Loretto, 211 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87501, United States

Everyone likes to be entertained, and early days in the old West was no exception! Early theatrical troupes featuring the actresses and singers of the day were always a welcome sight, especially in the mining towns and other places "out-in-the-sticks." Some of the earliest stars who braved the rugged traveling conditions in a stage coach or wagon over mountainous roads and high desert trails were Lillie Langtree, Sarah Bernhardt, Lillian Russell, Lotta Crabtree, and the famous Lola Montez. Primitive conditions often greeted these talented women, and sometimes their audiences wore their six-shooters right into the theatres. In New Mexico there were numerous old Opera Houses in Cerrillos, Raton, Albuquerque, and Socorro. But anywhere a tent or school, saloon or stable could create a "make-shift place," you could have your entertainment. These famous women performers traveled everywhere to give their audiences excitement, diversion and charm that can only be re-imagined in this enticing performance by VanAnn Moore.

This free, public program takes place at the Hubbard Museum of the American West. For more information, call (575)378-4142.

THATCamp New Mexico Coming in January!

THATCamp New Mexico

Sat, Jan 13, 2018, 10:00am - 5:00pm

National Hispanic Cultural Center, 4th Street Southwest, Albuquerque, NM, United States

The Humanities And Technology Camp (THATCamp) is a one-day “un-conference” where humanists come together with technologists to brainstorm, problem-solve, play, and teach each other. We’re expecting teachers, students, historians, makers, programmers, inventors, and entrepreneurs, just to name a few. 

But what is THATCamp?

  • It's collaborative: there are no spectators at a THATCamp. Everyone participates, including in the task of setting an agenda or program.
  • It's informal: there are no lengthy proposals, papers, presentations, or product demos. The emphasis is on productive, collegial work or free-form discussion.
  • It's spontaneous and timely: the program is mostly or entirely created by all the participants during the first session.
  • It's productive: participants are encouraged to use session time to create, build, write, hack, and solve problems.

The central New Mexico conference will be held Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the Domenici Education Building of the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Visit www.centralnm2018.thatcamp.org for more information and to register. The $25 registration fee includes lunch and a t-shirt. Scholarships are available.

Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest

La Academia de la Nueva Raza
Gallery talk with historian Enrique Lamadrid

Sat, Jan 13, 2018, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors, Lincoln Avenue, Santa Fe, NM, United States

At a time when concerts and gatherings on the West Coast gave birth to 1967's infamous "Summer of Love," New Mexico was experiencing its own social and environmental revolution depicted in Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest, an exhibition curated by Jack Loeffler and Meredith Davidson. 

 

The exhibition spans the decades of the 60s and 70s exploring this influx of young people to New Mexico and the subsequent collision of cultures. Through archival footage, oral histories, photography, ephemera and artifacts, the exhibition examines this cultural revolution and asks how these forms of rebellion inform the ways we think about contemporary social and political questions of what it means to be an engaged citizen.

 

Gallery talks occur monthly for the duration of the exhibit. 

 

The exhibit runs through February 11, 2018 at the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe. For more information, visit www.nmhistorymuseum.org

A Fork in the Road: J. Robert Oppenheimer and the Cold War

A Fork in the Road: J. Robert Oppenheimer and the Cold War

Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Sandoval County Historical, Edmund Road, Bernalillo, NM, United States

Jon Hunner, Director of the Public History Program at the New Mexico State University, explores how J. Robert Oppenheimer, the director of the Los Alamos lab that created the atomic bomb for the Manhattan Project, participated in the post war policy-making which helped direct the nascent nuclear weapons program of the nation. "Oppie" was a key figure in the U.S. nuclear weapons program from 1945 to 1954 as he chaired important governmental committees. He also was a public intellectual who wrote and lectured about the Atomic Age and nuclear science across the country and internationally. In the early 1950s, he was subjected to a security clearance procedure that revoked his top secret clearance and removed his influence from nuclear policy making. His hearing is an interesting event that showed the tenor of the Red Scare of the times, a fascinating example of the contested relationship between science and society in regards to nuclear weapons, public policy, and the Cold War.
