Contemporary or modern Mexico, covering the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, is the principle focus of this group, with an emphasis on political, ideological, cultural, social, technological, pedagogical, and artistic movements, processes, and activities. Through our research we trace, analyze, and explore the interconnectedness and complexity of official state processes, commercial enterprises, and community-based efforts, in contexts ranging from the local to the transnational and global. Our areas of interest include: nationalism; knowledge production; citizenship; history/historiography; education; public health; recorded sound and radio; theater, performance, music, and dance; film; science and culture; migration; memorialization and myth-making.
