An inaugural symposium commemorating the centennial of the revolution.
One of the most important sociopolitical events of the 20th century, the Revolution changed Mexican society, setting the country’s political, socioeconomic and cultural path for decades to come. At the same time, the Revolution drew the attention of artists, writers and social thinkers worldwide as post-revolutionary reconstruction provided a natural social laboratory for new ideas and institutions. Despite recent economic and political reforms, the long term consequences of the Revolution are visible in Mexico in multiple arenas, including literature and the arts, social movements, labor relations and education.
Organized in collaboration with UNAM-L.A., this symposium brings together historians and literary critics working on the impact and legacy of the Revolution. This event launches the Center for Mexican Studies year-long series commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the Mexican Revolution.
