Richard Rhoda, joint author with Tony Burton of “Geo-Mexico: the geography and dynamics of modern Mexico”, visited the University of Guanajuato on 2 July 2010 to present two lectures (based on the book) to an eager group of about 30 US students. The lectures were titled:
- “Mexico: More Important than We Think” and
- “Mexico: Current Trends and Issues.”
The students, all from the Big Ten universities and the University of Chicago, are participating in a Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) eight week summer program in Guanajuato.
We sincerely hope that all the students will take fond memories of Mexico back with them at the end of the summer, and that many of them will decide to undertake further studies and research related to Mexico in the future.
