Description:
CMAS plática examines railroad expansion
In this plática, CMAS research fellow Dr. Nicole Guidotti-Hernández focuses on an excerpt of her second book, "Red Devils and Railroads: Race, Gender and Capitalism in the Transnational Nineteenth Century Mexico Borderlands."
Guidotti-Hernández examines how the coming of the railroad to Tucson, Arizona, in 1880 dramatically shifted the economy to the point of causing an economic depression. In particular, Guidotti-Hernández looks at the life of one Tucsonense Mexican-indigenous pioneer, Petra Santa Cruz de Stevens, and the tragedy that changed her position in the community forever along lines of race, class, gender and sexuality.
