The Office of Global Programs has announced a new study abroad program in Mexico City. The program, the first in a series of global education programs created in partnership with the Department of Anthropology, will be offered in Spring 2016.
The Columbia Global Seminar in Mexico City will offer courses taught by Claudio Lomnitz, the Campbell Family Professor of Anthropology. Lomnitz will teach courses required for the anthropology major, as well as courses focused on Mexican and/or Latin American ethnographic methods and writings. Students in the program will have a chance to take part in excursions that will allow them to engage directly with primary materials, such as artifacts, visual materials, oral and written texts, performances and exhibitions. Students will also have a chance to enroll in courses offered by the program’s local university partner, Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE), one of Mexico’s most important centers of teaching and research for the social sciences.
