Join Dr. Ben Nobbs-Thiessen, the new chair in Mennonite Studies at the University of Winnipeg, as he gives the 5th annual lecture for the Centre for Transnational Mennonite Studies.
In the second half of the 20th century, Mennonite settlers contributed to unprecedented growth in Bolivia’s eastern lowlands. Dr. Nobbs-Thiessen will explore how their experiences as frontier farmers converged with those of Indigenous migrants from the Andes and Japanese and Okinawan settlers.
