Hola! Monday is Mexico Day

27 April 2012

Monday 30 April is Mexico Day at the University of Bristol. To celebrate the University of Bristol's links with Mexico, staff and students are invited to attend a question-and-answer session with the Mexican Ambassador, Eduardo Medina-Mora Icaza.

The hour-long session starts at 3pm in the Seminar Room of the Nanoscience Building on Tyndall Avenue. The event is free of charge.

Following the Q&A session, the Ambassador will be introducing a special lecture entitled ‘Rethinking nineteenth-century Mexico: Following in the steps of Professor Michael P. Costeloe’ by Bristol alumnus Professor Will Fowler of the University St Andrews.

The lecture is hosted by the Department of Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, and supported by the BIRTHA (Bristol Institute for Research in the Humanities and Arts) Distinguished Lecturer Scheme. The lecture takes places in Lecture Theatre 3, 17 Woodland Road, and will be followed by a wine reception, hosted by the School of Modern Languages.

The lecture is open to all. To reserve a seat and avoid disappointment, please email
