Professor Jennifer Jolly, Art History, was a featured speaker at a conference on the Mexican Muralists: Their Lives and Times at California State University, LA, in April.  She has also presented papers at multiple conferences this spring.


At the Cal State Mexican Muralism conference, Professor Jolly presented a featured lecture on Mexican Muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros.  The Aesthetics of Conflict: David Alfaro Siqueiros and the 1930s examined Siqueiros’s application of the principles of dialectical materialism to artistic production, aesthetics, and reception during the 1930s.   

Jolly has also shared her new research on the representation of Afro-Mexicans in 19thcentury Mexico at multiple venues this spring.  She presented the paper “Out of Place? Locating Afro-Mexicans in 19th-Century Mexico” at the Middle Atlantic Council of Latin American Studies in March.  This paper examined the geographic racial codes in the representation of Afro-Mexicans, with a focus on Don Feliciano Ramos, a former slave who became the patron of a church dedicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe.  In June, she presented her paper, “Rethinking Visibility in 19th-Century Mexico: The Case of José Maria Morelos,” at a LASA workshop dedicated to the Black Image in 19th-Century Latin America in Boston, MA.  This talk examined claims made about the racial identity of independence hero José Maria Morelos and the role of images in shaping our perceptions of the icon.
