CLAS Summer Institute for Teachers
"Remembering the Mexican-American War"
Tuesday, June 28, 2011

“The United States never remembers, and Mexico never forgets,” is an oft-quoted maxim about the relationship between the North American neighbors. And there is no chapter in the history of those two nations that it better describes than the Mexican–American War (known as the invasión estadounidense south of the border). In this workshop, we will take an in-depth look at a conflict that is often glossed over in U.S. history courses in spite of the fact that it sharpened sectional divisions in the antebellum United States and cost Mexico half its territory.

Speakers include UC Berkeley history professors Alex Saragoza and Brian DeLay.

The institute is free and open to all educators. Registration forms are available online or by calling Jean Spencer at 510-642-2088.

Tuesday, June 28, 2011, 8:45 am – 5:00 pm
