Mexican Studies Group

Published by chelsea at 8:02 pm under Spring 2014 Newsletter

In Fall 2013, Helena Simonett (CLAS) organized a brown bag lunch talk with Arturo Santamaría Gómez (Professor of Sociology, Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa, Mazatlán) on soccer and Mexican neo-national identity, titled “Futbol y patria: La nueva identidad mexicana,” and a panel by Marian Mendoza Gómez (Universidad Veracruzana) and Paulo Martínez (Vanderbilt University) on Mexico’s recent educational reform and ensuing nationwide protest and brutal governmental response: “La encrucijada de la Reforma Educativa en México: Una mirada interdisciplinar a la crisis social y política.”

The Mexican Studies Group, co-sponsored by the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities and CLAS, brings together faculty and graduate students from history, political science, literature, sociology, art, anthropology, music, pedagogy, and Latin American Studies. For spring 2014 semester events, please contact co-organizer Edward Wright-Rios (History).
