Eric Van Young, distinguished UCSD professor of history with a life-long study of Mexico, will speak on the Mexican Independence movement (1810-1821) and the Mexican Revolution (1910-1921) and their continuing effect today.
Both revolutions, occurring exactly one century apart, racked the country with prolonged large-scale violence. These massive upheavals, leaving in their wake unresolved political, social and cultural problems, can teach us much about the path of Mexican history and about at least some of the problems the country faces today.
