Public Forum: The State of Mexico Today

This will be a forum with presentations from, and dialogue with, representatives from several social movements in Mexico: students from Ayotzinapa; mothers of disappeared students and young women; agricultural workers; members of the Teachers Union, and; activists involved with 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, the neoliberalization of education and life, and the privatization of common goods.

Co-sponsored by the Departments of Anthropology, Chicano/Latino Studies, Gender & Women Studies, Sociology, The Program in Critical Theory, and Maxine Elliot Professor funds.
