Gerald Poyo, Ph.D.
O'Connor Chair

Join St. Mary's University for its annual O'Connor Lecture, Reimagining Catholic Thought in Late-18th Century Monterey and San Antonio: Catholic Rationalism and Revolutionary Stirrings, sponsored by the O'Connor Chair for the History of Hispanic Texas and the Southwest.

Last year's lecture offered an overview of the history of 18th century San Antonio in honor of San Antonio's tricentennial commemorations.

This year's third annual O'Connor lecture features Raul Coronado of the University of California-Berkley, who will follow-up with a deeper dive into San Antonio's late 18th century history. His presentation will explore reformist Catholic thought in northern new Spain, especially Monterey, and its influence on the political turbulence in Texas after Miguel Hidalgo's revolt in 1810.

RSVP is required to attend the reception to follow.
