Upcoming Events

"Shadows at Dawn" Book Talk with Alfredo Corchado
April 26, 2017 | Register
"Shadows at Dawn" is the narrative of a country in a painful, tumultuous economic and political transition that haunts journalist Alfredo Corchado through three decades. It is a passionate and personal tale that begins during the Mexican exodus to the United States in the tumultuous 1980s, with amnesty, and moves into the booming 90s with NAFTA.

"Housing Across Borders: Mexican and U.S. Housing in Perspective"
May 26, 2017 | Register 
The aim of this conference to discuss housing in Mexico and the U.S. together: looking for connections, identifying elements for comparison, and exploring common processes shaping housing—broadly construed—on both sides of the border. Through this conversation we hope to extract lessons as a provocation that can lead us to testing our ideas about what housing and city mean. Guest speakers include: Dr. Paavo Monkkonen, Dr. Noelle Stout, and Dr. Peter M. Ward.
