Culturally Mapping Albuquerque

A two-year project collaboration of university faculty and high school teachers to study the relationship between migration and cultural heritage preservation in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Culturally Mapping Albuquerque project brings together scholars, educators, cultural workers, and students to collect, analyze, and interpret narratives on the relationship between migration and cultural heritage preservation in the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Over a 24-month period, faculty from across the US and UNM, high school teachers from Albuquerque Public Schools, and cultural workers from the city of Albuquerque will meet in workshops, roundtables, and a major public symposium to develop humanistic understandings of the ways human mobility and cultural heritage efforts shape city landscapes. The city of Albuquerque is a critical site of analysis because of its rich cultural services and long history of multicultural and multi-ethnic communities. Participants will examine Indigenous migration stories, artistic and literary presentations of transcontinental settlement, and global art productions of migrations and relocations that define New Mexicans in the 21st century.
