High Noon Talk: Managed Migrations

Bullock Texas State History Museum

Discover the Texas origins of policing the US-Mexico border.

High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through a casual lunch-time lecture. Join Dr. Cristina Salinas for a conversation about her award-winning book, Managed Migrations, which has been described as "a study as paramount as it is timely." This work examines the concurrent development of a border agricultural industry and changing methods of border enforcement in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas during the past century. Program is FREE to the public.

TEXAS HISTORY TUESDAYS: What Makes Texas, Texas?

Bullock Texas State History Museum

Two Opportunities to Connect Online: 10am & 1pm

A museum educator, primary sources, and interesting content is a winning instructional combination. These programs are typically taught to elementary and middle school audiences, but we invite anyone who is looking for an enriching and fun experience to connect with us. What do you picture when you think about Texas? How much do you know about the symbols chosen by our Legislature? Which symbols of Texas are your favorites? A Museum Educator will lead students as they discover the important elements and symbols that represent our great state through sight and sound. Program is FREE to the public. Zoom webinar registration required. You'll be able to ask questions during the Q and A at the end of the program.
