The State of Mexico Today

Public Forum

November 3, 2016

Event Description

The forum will feature representatives from seven social movements in Mexico, including students from Ayotzinapa, mothers of disappeared youth, agricultural workers; members of a teachers union, and those fighting for indigenous rights. The battles being fought against multifaceted forms of state violence in Mexico will be placed in a wider context of human rights abuse, racial inequality, and neoliberalization.


Co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies; the Departments of Anthropology, Chicano/Latino Studies, Gender & Women’s Studies, Sociology, and Spanish & Portuguese; the Program in Critical Theory; and the Maxine Elliott Chair.
