A Conference on the History and Legacy of the 1919 Canales Investigation in Texas

Organization of a conference on the 1919 Canales investigation into violence along the US-Mexican border. 36 months)

Reverberations of Memory, Violence, and History: The Centennial of the 1919 Canales Investigation places a traumatic event in U.S. history at the center of a public conversation about how instances of state violence not only exemplified deep socio-economic transformations in our nation and along its borders, but how community responses to such violence have left a long-lasting legacy. This project seeks to mark the centennial of the J.T. Canales Investigation of 1919 that called for an inquiry into the violence committed by the Texas Rangers, the state’s elite law enforcement organization, which proved to be the first major government investigation of anti-Latino violence in U.S. history. The Project will feature a two-day conference on the centennial and legacies of the Canales Investigation. It will subsequently produce the first scholarly edited volume based on selected and further expanded conference presentations.
