Mexican Studies Group

The Mexican Studies Group brings together scholars working on Mexico from across New York City and surrounding areas.  The initiative looks to bolster dialogue between researchers, community members, and students through the organization of academic talks, thematic study groups, and other relevant events. The program provides one of the few spaces in the New York area for Mexicanists to gather and discuss their research and related activities.
