Public History Project


MAS Public History Project

“Nuestras Tierras, Nuestras Culturas, Nuestras Historias”

The goal of the MAS Public History Program is to reclaim, preserve, and document the experiences and contributions of the people of Mexican descent in the United States-Mexico border region. 


 Grounded in community, we seek to build  collaborative research  projects that  disseminate and expand our knowledge and  appreciation of the region. It also strives to  share academic research and knowledge  beyond the walls of the university and to  support  research efforts that  allow community members the  opportunity to become producers of  knowledge and narrate their  own stories. 

 This project relies on the community to share its information,  resources, and intellectual wealth.  We encourage those interested to  consider donating photgraphs, letters, documents, ephemera,  iconographic material and other mementos to us.
