Mr. Zavala will be presenting his research on the mosaic of Brownsville’s identity. Geographical, historical, and literary narratives about the Lower Rio Grande Valley and Brownsville form part of his research. According to Mr. Zavala, the city’s regional border identity and national identity are often in conflict with each other; just as easily as they can be adopted, both identities can be equally ignored. Zavala’s research will show how this affects Brownsville’s identity.
