Event Details

Many of us who come to Southern Arizona from other parts of the country may know little or nothing about our neighbor to the south, Mexico and its heritage. This overview introductory course is in two sessions, with an optional third session. In session one we’ll explore Mexico’s indigenous origins, the Spanish Conquest and the Colonial period which ended in 1810. In session two we’ll review Mexico’s struggle for independence leading to the present. The optional third session on February 17 is a field trip to Nogales for cultural exploration and lunch in Mexico (passport required). The recommended text for the class is Lynn Foster’s “A Brief History of Mexico: Fourth Edition”.
