The Heritage Center of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County will host a discussion with Dr. Antonio Vásquez on “Life Along the Fence: A Long View of Guest Worker Programs”.

Free and open to the general public, the event begins at 11:30 a.m. on May 15 at the Heritage Center of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County. This event is made possible through the Conversations Bureau, a new program of Humanities Tennessee.

Dr. Antonio Vásquez is a former dissertation fellow and current instructor of Global Studies at MTSU. He earned his doctorate in American Studies and Latino Studies from Michigan State University in 2013, and holds a Master’s degree in International Relations from St. Mary’s University in Texas. Dr. Vásquez’s current research examines the twentieth-century history of Mexican American agricultural labor and formation of Latino communities in the southern United States. His dissertation was the co-recipient of the 2014 NACCS Tejas Dissertation Award by the National Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies Tejas Foco. The award recognizes the “best dissertation that makes a significant contribution to the Mexican American experience in Texas.”

The Conversations Bureau offers a selection of facilitated discussions based on short texts that explore freedom and equality in America since the Civil War era. Available to non-profit organizations in Tennessee, all Conversations are free and open to the general public.

Seating is limited, so please contact the Heritage Center at 217-8013 to reserve your space.
