The Mexico-U.S. Interface and Mexicans in the United States

Lecture Description

This lecture examines the history of Mexicans in the U.S. in light of the conditions in Mexico that have induced migration to the U.S. since the turn of the 20th century. In this regard, the lecture provides the specific Mexican policies that contributed to the sources of migration northward as well as the regional origins of immigrants and their significance. In addition, the lecture takes into account the presence of Mexican popular culture and its development in the U.S., given the presence of Mexican film, recordings, and Spanish-language radio north of the border.
