In 2009, the Katz Center for Mexican Studies began publishing works by scholars of Mexican history, in collaboration with partner institutions in Mexico. These partnerships have since produced the following works:

Modernidad, vanguardia y revolución en la poesía mexicana (1919-1930)

Edited by Anthony Stanton. Published in 2014 as part of the El Colegio de México and the Katz Center agreement for collaboration and intellectual exchange. This book is the third product of this collaboration. It has its origins during an international symposium held at The University of Chicago in September 2008, as an extension of Anthony Stanton’s visit at the University as Tinker Visiting Professor during the fall of 2006.

Revolución y exilio en la historia de México: Del amor de un historiador a su patria adoptiva.

This homage to Professor Friedrich Katz (1927-2010) is an edited volume that considers the historiographic significance of Professor Katz’s contributions to the field. Co-edited by Katz Center Director and Professor of History Emilio Kourí and Colegio de México historian Javier Garciadiego, the volume includes the following essays:

En Busca de Molina Enriquez: Cien Años de Los Grandes Problemas Nacionales

This book comprises a collection of six essays that were presented at a colloquium organized by the Katz Center in 2008. The essays reflect on the legacies of Andrés Molina Enríquez’s influential study of Mexico’s social problems, Los Grandes Problemas Nacionales, one hundred years after its publication. Published jointly between the Katz Center for Mexican Studies and El Colegio de México, the volume was edited by Professor Emilio Kourí and includes articles by Mauricio Tenorio, Claudio Lomnitz, Antonio Azuela, Alejandra Nuñez, Fernando Escalante, and Emilio Kourí.
