Event description

  • Academic events
  • Free
  • Open to the public

Join the ASU Library for the next installment of the “Beyond the Bookshelf” series on Wednesday, Feb. 28 from 3 to 4 p.m. You’re invited to a virtual conversation with ASU Professor David Martínez about his book, “My Heart Is Bound Up with Them: How Carlos Montezuma Became the Voice of a Generation,” a critical new perspective on a well-known and influential Indigenous figure of the turn of the twentieth century. Register to receive the Zoom link.

Centering historically neglected Indigenous voices as its primary source material, Martínez shows how Carlos Montezuma’s correspondence and interactions with this family and their community influenced his advocacy–and how his important work in Arizona specifically motivated his work on a national level. 

Martínez will be joined in conversation with Social Sciences Librarian Brad Vogus and Vina Begay, assistant librarian with the Labriola National American Indian Data Center.

David Martínez (Akimel O'odham/Hia-Ced O'odham/Mexican), Professor of American Indian Studies and Transborder Studies (joint appointment), is the author of several books and is also the director and founder of the Institute for Transborder Indigenous Nations, which is housed in the School of Transborder Studies, where it focuses on the Indigenous nations impacted by the US-Mexico Border.

“Beyond the Bookshelf” is a series presented by the ASU Library featuring ASU authors in conversation with librarians.
