Conference Theme

Querencia Interrupted: Hispano and Native American Experiences of the Manhattan Project

October 12-14, 2017

Northern New Mexico College, Española Campus & Northern Rio Grande Heritage Center

This year’s conference theme: “Querencia Interrupted: Native American and Hispanic Experiences of the Manhattan Project” – is an effort to honor and acknowledge the importance of (re)membering the people, stories, and places that contribute(d) to the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Since the original displacement of Native American and Hispanic peoples from the Pajarito Plateau to the inclusion of Natives and Hispanos as a local workforce that made the Manhattan Project possible, New Mexicans have been actively involved and impacted by the scientific laboratory. The Historias de Nuevo Mexico/Histories of New Mexico conference recognizes the complex ways in which New Mexicans connect to and think about the multiple concepts of what it means to have a homeland. In October 2017, we will convene to dialogue about the critical contributions of Nuevomexicanas/os to the Manhattan Project, how the Project’s implications continue to shape the region of north central New Mexico, and the many complex understandings of citizens’ relationships to “the lab,” as it is known locally.
