Researching Mexico: University of Chicago Field Explorations in Mexico, 1896-2014 - New exhibit at Special Collections unearths UChicago’s research in Mexico

Those of you who are interested in the history of international educational research, study and exchange and/or U.S. & Mexico academic engagement may find interest in a current exhibit “Researching Mexico: University of Chicago Field Explorations in Mexico, 1896-2014 “ at Special Collections at the University of Chicago.

The exhibition is on view in the Special Collections Research Center Gallery from June 30, 2014 - October 4, 2014.  Gallery hours: Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:45 p.m.  Saturday, 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. when classes are in session.   

You can read, see a few items from the collection and learn more at:

To be sure, viewing this exhibit is easiest done by those in the Chicagoland area or those who will find themselves in the city while the exhibit is open.  I have yet to visit the exhibit so I am unable to comment but I have penciled in a date to visit next week.

[note that Summer Quarter classes end Saturday, August 30th so based on my understanding the exhibit would be open this coming Saturday and Autumn Quarter classes begin at the UofC on Monday, September 29th which would make October 4th the last day of the exhibit and an open day you can view on a Saturday]
