Wed. August 31, 2016
University of California Press has published Art History professor Dr. George Flaherty's Hotel Mexico: Dwelling on the '68 Movement. Initially a dissertation, Flaherty's book explores the ways that events surrounding the 1968 Olympic games in Mexico served as the field for a dramatic upheaval in Mexican culture and how the city itself became a medium of communication.
Flaherty will be discussing his book with Laura Gutierrez, of the Department of Theater and Dance, at the LLILAS Faculty Book Presentation on September 2, 2016 at noon at the Benson Latin American Collection.
