Join us in the heart of the Southwest for our Place as Text Faculty Institute in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico—a multicultural nexus where traditions converge, histories overlap, and tales of resistance, adaptation, and unity are hidden in plain sight. We will sift through the layers of cultural landscape and challenge the “tricultural myth” that oversimplifies the region’s diversity. In Old Town and along Route 66, in downtown and various neighborhoods like the Sawmill District, Barelas, and Nob Hill, we will dig up dialogues, critiques, and celebrations of the multicultural city. Taking the Rail Runner to Santa Fe, we will have the chance to compare these observations and insights to the narratives and realities in the capital city. The Albuquerque and Santa Fe Faculty Institute offers a chance to redefine your understanding of place and to bring these insights into your teaching, co-curricular planning, and beyond.
