Historian Flannery Burke will be here to read and discuss her book A Land Apart: The Southwest and the Nation in the Twentieth Century
A Land Apart is not just a cultural history of the modern Southwest—it is a complete rethinking and recentering of the key players and primary events marking the Southwest in the twentieth century.
Historian Flannery Burke emphasizes policy over politicians, communities over individuals, and stories over simple narratives.
Flannery Burke is an associate professor of history at Saint Louis University. She is the author of From Greenwich Village to Taos: Primitivism and Place at Mabel Dodge Luhan’s.
