Unexpected Connections: Mennonites in Mexican Media

Join us on Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the University of Winnipeg (515 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, MB), room 2M70 in Manitoba Hall, for the 3rd Annual Centre for Transnational Mennonite Studies (CTMS) Lecture, “Unexpected Connections: Mennonites in Mexican Media” by Dr. Rebecca Janzen, Assistant Professor, University of South Carolina.

How have Low German Mennonites been viewed by their Mexican neighbours? Mexican archival photographs, documents, and television tell us much about the Mennonites – their conflict with Indigenous people, their struggle over land, their relationship with violent drug cartels. In the process, these sources ask us how we decide how belongs in a society.
