The History of the Mexican Revolution 1910-1920

The Mexican Revolution of 1910 represents a milestone in the history of Mexico.  As a movement for social justice and social change, the Revolution ended 30 years of dictatorship and established the foundations for modern Mexico.  The widespread violence produced a massive migration of Mexicans to the United States.  The Revolution inspired literature, music, and art that drew their themes from these historical periods.  The aim of this symposium is to celebrate these creative arts.  This symposium launches the 2010-12 diversity theme, Legacies.
