Wednesday Seminars

Break up your week with USMEX, when on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. in the GPS Dean's Conference Room (unless otherwise noted) the center gives the floor to a USMEX Fellow to highlight their respective research while in residence. Seminars also feature invited guests doing research on Mexico and U.S.-Mexico relations. Learn about a wide range of topics, plus get in on the discussion.

All our seminars are held via Zoom video conference. If you would like to attend please contact Greg Mallinger.
