EDINBURG, Texas — The Museum of South Texas History is pleased to announce Dr. Servando Hinojosa as the next guest presenter for the Sunday Speaker Series Online presentation “Reflecting on Día de los Muertos: Life, Healing and Family,” which is set for Sunday, Oct. 25, at 2 p.m. on Facebook Live. This presentation is part of the two-week digital programming, Día de los Muertos: Los Muertos Bailan, with the City of Edinburg.

Día de los Muertos celebrations face new challenges in the times of Covid-19 and social distancing. However, some traditions never change. Hinojosa, anthropology professor at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, will discuss Día de los Muertos traditions, and encourage guests to consider the possibility of new ways to observe this day.

Hinojosa earned a doctorate’s degree in Cultural Anthropology at Tulane in 1999. His studies focus on medical anthropology, with special interest in Latin America. During research, he has traveled to Peru, Guatemala and Turkey. He’s currently a faculty partner in the Traditional Mexican American Folklore holding at UTRGV’s Border Studies Archive.

To watch the live presentation, please visit facebook.com/MOSTHistory/live. Viewers are encouraged to interact with the presenter by posting questions and comments on the live chat. The presentation will also be recorded and posted for public access on the Museum’s Facebook page and website.

This program is made possible by the generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was committed to educational causes in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created by her family to honor her memory and to continue providing educational opportunities for the community.
