“The (In)Visible Worker: Contract Agricultural Laborers in the California Borderlands, 1910-1926”

January 30 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The first lecture of Spring 2023 in the History Department’s symposium series will take place on Monday, January 30th at 3:00 pm in Hill Auditorium (Barrows Hall). Dr. Erik Bernardino (Bates College) will be speaking about “The (In)Visible Worker: Contract Agricultural Laborers in the California Borderlands, 1910-1926.” The lecture is free and open to the public. The History Department Symposium Series, “History through Food & Drink,” is supported in part by a grant from the Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series Fund and the McGillicuddy Humanities Center.

Erik Bernardino is a historian of the twentieth century United States specializing in Latinx, immigration, and borderlands histories with particular interests in the intersection of immigration policy and labor migrations at the turn of the twentieth century. His current research questions why US federal-level immigration policies relied on local-level morals policing to enforce national-level policies of border control.
