Alejandro Murguia, professor of Latina/o studies at San Francisco State University, will discuss the Mexican Revolution of 1910 from the perspective of postcards depicting the conflict, and mailed all over the world.
Photography was a still a new medium at the turn of the century, and battlefield images griped the attention of a public fascinated by the conflict in Mexico.
This slideshow and lecture is part of the Celebrating Mexico exhibit on the third floor of the Main Library, International Center.
