March Lecture: Home Lands: How Women Made the West
March 9, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm presents Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series at La Quinta
Introducing the Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series at La Quinta, occurring monthly. Named in honor of Dr. Rembe, who passed away this spring, and inspired by his love of Los Poblanos, his curiosity, intelligence and community relations, this series aims to celebrate his legacy by promoting stimulating conversations rooted in the core values and mission of Los Poblanos. The lecture series is also a nod to the rich history of La Quinta Cultural Center of the 1930s and 1940s, when the Simms family held lectures and events that promoted the arts. As we work to preserve La Quinta as an important architectural landmark, we also aim to emulate its dynamic programming through our own curated events and experiences. Join us for a culturally rich day at La Quinta by joining us for afternoon tea before the evening lecture.
Join Los Poblanos this March to celebrate Women’s History Month with Professor Virginia Scharff. For thousands of years before it became part of the American West, the place that would become New Mexico was home to diverse people. We cannot understand that history without knowing that women were there, claiming homes in myriad ways, using what they found at hand to sustain life and community. In this lecture, I will show how women in the countryside, villages and cities have claimed New Mexico as a home place, from 11th century Chaco Canyon to 21st century landscapes more familiar to us. We will come to understand how seeing women in history makes history look different.
Please plan to arrive at La Quinta 15-30 minutes before the start of the lecture to check in. Light beverage offerings will be available for purchase.
