A two-year study and curricular development project on the theory and works of South Texas women artists and writers, for Texas A& M University faculty and Kingsville school teachers.

"Towards an Aesthetics of South Texas Women Artists,” seeks to study and listen to the underrepresented voices of women writers and artist from South Texas. Part of a larger regionalist project that “call[s] into question numerous cultural assumptions about literary history, poetics, thematics, genres, and reading strategies . . .” (Fetterley and Pryse 2), our proposal aims to recover and analyze regional artistic productions as modes of discourse about location (Fetterley and Pryse 11). We propose further to articulate a paradigm by which to discuss and characterize South Texas women’s art and literature in relation to the area, the larger traditions of women’s regionalist writing and art, and national discourses of nationhood.

An eighteen-month curriculum development project for a new Native American and Indigenous Studies program at a Hispanic-serving institution with a large Native American student population.

Heritage University, a private, four-year Hispanic-Serving Institution located on the Yakama Indian Reservation in rural Eastern Washington, proposes an eighteen-month "Somos Indios, We are Indian: Bridging Indigenous Identities" curriculum development project. Processing themes through dialogues with invited scholars will deepen understandings of the shared socio-political histories of our Hispanic and Native American students, thereby providing a critical interdisciplinary Humanities foundation for contested identity dialogue in four key courses of a Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) Program currently under development. Additionally, ten culturally-embedded course assignments or projects following the theme of "We are Indian" will be created and housed in our online Center for Intercultural Learning and Teaching to enhance faculty teaching across the curriculum.

This project will examine images of women in 20th-century Mexican art and visual culture. It will culminate in a book manuscript and several scholarly articles. The project will analyze and contextualize the representation of women in relation to period debates in Mexico about cultural identity and concerns about moral, social and racial hygiene. Despite the abundance of gender analysis on European and U.S. art, no such study exists in the field of Mexican art. Instead, scholarship on images of women in 20th-century Mexican art has focused on several national icons including the Virgin of Guadalupe, Malinche, and more recently, Frida Kahlo. While the significance of these icons and their archetypical sources (the Virgin/whore) is certain, this focus has tended to obscure the enormous symbolic and aesthetic complexity of images of women in Mexico, and the specific social and cultural issues referenced therein. Images produced in a variety of media will be analyzed in historical and social context over a forty-year period, spanning the decades before and after the Mexican Revolution (1910-1917). By including the pre- and postrevolutionary decades, this study will complicate current understanding of the cultural continuities and ruptures manifest in the first half of the 20th-century. This book will contribute to the art historical discipline and to the study of Latin American art, to gender studies, and to Mexican area and cultural studies. By taking an interdisciplinary approach that considers images of womanhood in socio-political context, and by moving beyond biographical analysis or a focus on images in a single artistic medium this book will significantly complicate and expand current scholarship on 20th-century Mexican art.

Planning of an exhibition on the historical and cultural legacy of Malinche (died, 1529), an indigenous Mexican Gulf Coast woman who was the explorer Hernando Cortés’ translator, cultural interpreter, and mistress during the Spanish conquest of the Aztec empire (1519–21).

The Denver Art Museum (DAM) requests a planning grant of $60,000 for Malinche as Metaphor, a traveling exhibition co-organized with the Fowler Museum at UCLA. Malinche as Metaphor examines the historical and cultural legacy of Malinche’s role in the events of the conquest of the Aztec empire, and the ways her image has been interpreted and appropriated through the centuries. Exhibition themes explore her role as an indigenous woman in the sixteenth century, interpreter and translator, national traitor, symbolic mother of a mixed race, and figure for the Chicano movement. This multi-media exhibition will be presented at three US venues, with an array of public programs and fully-illustrated catalog, all presented in English and Spanish, and informed by multi-disciplinary panels comprising humanities scholars, artists, authors, and theorists. Planning entails essential research, curatorial and advisory convenings, and up to three visitor focus groups.

Implementation of an exhibition on the legacy of Malinche (died, 1529), an indigenous Mexican Gulf Coast woman who was the explorer Hernando Cortés’ translator, cultural interpreter, and mistress during the Spanish conquest of the Aztec empire (1519–21).

The Denver Art Museum (DAM), in collaboration with the Fowler Museum at UCLA, will present a traveling exhibition, Malinche as Metaphor, including public programs, publication, and a symposium. Co-curated by the DAM’s curator of pre-Columbian art Victoria Lyall, Ph.D., chief curator of the Fowler Museum Matthew H. Robb, Ph.D., and independent scholar Terezita Romo, this interdisciplinary exhibition will debut at the DAM from November 15, 2020 to February 28, 2021, then travel to the Fowler Museum from April 4, 2021 to July 25, 2021. Malinche as Metaphor is the first comprehensive exploration of the historical and cultural legacy of an indigenous woman at the heart of the Spanish Conquest of Mexico (1519–1521). Through historical and legal documents, scholarly and literary impressions, visual culture, and multi-media content, this exhibition traces Malinche’s continuing and contested legacy as a participant in the events of the Conquest.
