Katz Program on Mexican Culture
In autumn of 2010, the University of Chicago, through the Katz Center for Mexican Studies, and Mexico's National Council for Culture and the Arts (CONACULTA) signed an agreement to establish the Cátedra Cultura de México-Katz (Katz Program on Mexican Culture) at the University of Chicago.
The Program is named in honor of Friedrich Katz (1927-2010), a distinguished professor at the University of Chicago whose path-breaking scholarship on Mexican history is widely celebrated.
As part of the agreement, Mexican creative artists and academics from a wide array of disciplines will visit the University of Chicago to offer lectures, performances, seminars, and courses. Read more about the agreement at the CONACULTA website.
We are still working on our 2013 Cátedra de Cultura México-Katz conference. Check back with us soon!
