Mexican Revolution Studies Revised
Themes from the Mexican Revolution will be analyzed by specialists from September 2009 and until 2010, as part of a historiographic revision of the 20th century.

MEXICO CITY.- Transformation of Mexican nationalism based on revolutionary values in globalization; agrarian movement promoted by Zapata adapted to a new situation, and Madero’s polemical though related to re election, are some themes to be analyzed by specialists from September 2009 and until 2010, as part of a historiographic revision of the 20th century.

The “6th Certificate of Mexican 20th Century History, Century of the Revolution”, organized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) is part of the centennial of the armed movement celebrations, and academic discussion will focus on themes that have changed economic, politic and cultural structures in Mexico.

“Revolution still has deep meanings from economic, politic and cultural perspectives”, pointed out Sergio Hernandez, researcher at INAH Direction of Historical Studies, and coordinator of the academic gathering.

In his opinion, there are still living icons like Francisco Villa, theme of several studies, and Zapata’s agrarian theme, that has transformed and adapted to new situations.

The course begins in September 9th 2009 and ends in July 7th 2010. The inaugural conference, Mexican Revolution and 20th Century, by Carlos Monsivais, will be followed by lectures by Armando Batra, Arturo Soberon, Salvador Rueda Smithers, Alicia Olivera, Gustavo Leal, Dolores Pla, Carlos Tello Macias, Carlos Martinez Assad y Lorenzo Meyer, among others.

The INAH historian points out that it is fundamental to offer a footing to understand actual issues. “Society wonders why the regimen’s politic transformation has not come off into solid democratic participation structures; Revolution heritage, such as social, educative and health issues are theme of debate to present”.

This course pretends to get close to these events and have more knowledge of “living pasts”, as well as cultural and popular expressions, aiming to strengthen social plurality and globalization process.

“Conformation of a new economy linked to most important economic centers; raising of a more critic citizenship after 1968, and the economic model crisis under which Mexico grew during 20 or 30 years but keeps stuck to present, are part of actual worries rooted in the immediate past”, concluded the specialist.
