The Mexican Revolution through Culture, and Keynote Speech

Mexico had double cause for commemoration and reflection in 2010, when the bicentenary of the nation's Independence and the centenary of the Mexican Revolution coincided.

While countries across the region will be marking anniversaries of independence from European rule throughout the coming years, the Revolution is by contrast a uniquely Mexican experience and the British Academy and Embassy of Mexico the UK have collaborated to organise an international event which offers new perspectives on this pivotal process in Mexican history.

Professor Alan Knight, a world authority on the Mexican Revolution, heads a programme of leading academics and commentators from the UK and Mexico who will explore this seminal event through various aspects of history and culture.
