UTEP Borderlands History Conference (El Paso, November 6-7, 2015)

Lina-Maria Murillo (University of Texas at El Paso) writes to us:

Buenas tardes Manuel,
My name is Lina-Maria Murillo and I am a coordinator for the Borderlands History Blog (http://borderlandshistory.org/). I am currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Texas El Paso in the Borderlands History Program.
We are very excited about your new blog and would love to contribute or perhaps co-post if possible.
With that said I was wondering how we might get onto your announcement page? We are currently promoting the UTEP Borderlands History Conference in El Paso, Texas from November 6-7, 2015. We’ve posted the program to the Borderlands History Blog and were wondering if we might be able to post it with you.
