IHS Workshop: "Rural Education, Political Education, Political Consciousness and the Mexican Revolution" by Dr. Tanalís Padilla, Dartmouth College
Mon, November 21, 2011 • 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM • GAR 4.100
Dr. Tanalís Padilla, Associate Professor of History at Dartmouth College, received her Ph.D. in Latin American history from the University of California, San Diego in 2001. Her primary research interests include the history of Mexico’s agrarian movements, rural teachers and the post-revolutionary period. Her current research, entitled “The Unintended Lessons of Revolution: School Teachers in the Mexican Countryside, 1940-1975”, examines the role of rural schoolteachers in the context of state formation as the nation turned increasingly urban, and the changing social identities of peasant students turned professionals.
