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 Cultural México-Katz (Katz Program on Mexican Culture) at the University of Chicago.
As part of the agreement, Mexican creative artists and academics from a wide array of disciplines visit the University of Chicago to offer lectures, performances, seminars, and courses. Read more about the agreement at the CONACULTA website.
