The Culture and History of Cemeteries in Central Texas

Juarez_cemeteries_origThe Culture and History of Cemeteries in Central Texas

The Cemeteries Project is a long-term, ongoing research venture designed to document, preserve, and analyze Mexican American cemeteries and funerary practices in central and south Texas. This interdisciplinary and ethnohistorical project depends on many collaborators, especially the long-term residents and elders of the local Mexican American community. Other collaborators include students, faculty, local and state-level agencies and cultural centers, and the Hispanic History of Texas Project. Portions of this research will be on display at Centro Cultural Hispano de San Marcos through September 30, 2014
