1810 ~ 1910 ~ 2010 Mexico's Unfinished Revolutions

The symposium on the movements of 1810 and 1910 has a double goal: to reflect on what they meant for their participants and on the ways they left an undeniable imprint on Mexican culture, through socio-cultural policies or questions that emerged during these struggles and still await a possible resolution. This conference will address topics such as the problematic relationships between ethnic groups and genders, between state and church, and the important theme of social justice.

The symposium in being held in conjunction with the exhibition Celebrating Mexico, on view through January 14, 2011 (Bancroft Gallery, Monday--Friday, 10--4). The exhibit showcases the rich collections of The Bancroft Library and provides an opportunity to look at these two transforming periods in Mexican history. In 1883, Hubert Howe Bancroft made his first trip to Mexico, where in addition to his collecting activities, he was entertained by Mexican president Porfirio Díaz. After the University of California acquired The Bancroft Library in 1906, Mexican history continued to be a major collection focus. The Library is a major repository for research on all aspects of Mexican history and society.
