Dear H-New Mexicans,
Some of you may be interested in following "Writing Westward," a podcast produced by the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies at Brigham Young University. Of particular interest is this week's podcast (episode #006 in the series) featuring an interview with Flannery Burke, author of the award-winning book A Land Apart: The Southwest and the Nation in the Twentieth Century (The Modern American West Series, Tucson: University of Arizona Press, 2017). As the web site states, "Her work invites us to set aside prior understandings of New Mexico and Arizona, which too often drew from ideas, narratives, and identities imposed by outsiders on the Southwest region. In their place, Burke provides stories and experiences from the region's residents."
