Gold and Guns: Colorado and the Civil War West
Megan Kate Nelson – writer and historian

Cornerstone 131 (Screening Room) Tuesday, October 2 – 6:00pm

When most people think of Civil War battlefields, they do not think of high mountain passes, desert rivers, and deep red rock canyons. But they should. Between 1861 and 1865, the Union Army fought a series of battles against three different enemies in New Mexico and Arizona: Confederates, Apaches, and Navajos. In the end, they won most of these battles and saved the West for the Union. They were able to do this for a variety of reasons: the willingness of Colorado gold miners and Hispano New Mexicans to volunteer for the war effort; the Union Army’s use of hard-war tactics against all of their opponents; and the Lincoln Administration’s vision of a free-labor future, which required both African-American emancipation and Native American incarceration. In her talk, Nelson will tell these little-known stories of the Civil War, and explain the significance of the West in the fight for America’s future.

“Cat Fights on the Río & Diabolic Caminos in the Desert: The nature of boundary enforcement in the US-Mexico borderlands” by Juanita Sundberg

In this lecture, Sundbger presents a more-than-human analysis of boundary making and enforcement at the United States’ southern border with Mexico. This form of analysis seeks to account for other-than-humans as actors who participate in making worlds. Familiar narratives about boundary enforcement at the US-Mexico border feature humans as the primary actors of significance and position other-than-humans in an inferior ontological realm called Nature. Struggles to manage lively assemblages of other-than-humans, has led state actors to call for authoritarian legal mechanisms and ever more militarized tactics and infrastructure like walls and surveillance technology. Sundberg suggests, attention to other-than-humans leads to different explanations for the causes of escalating enforcement in the US-Mexico borderlands; such explanations contest the pursuit of mastery.

Juanita Sundberg is Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia, Canada; she is also Faculty Associate at the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality, and Social Justice as well as the Institute for Resources, Environment & Sustainability also at the University of British Columbia.
