XV Symposium MX



Durham University
12-14 July 2017

The Symposium of Mexican Studies and Students is an annual multidisciplinary meeting that provides a forum to present current academic work, exchange knowledge and ideas, and enhance professional networks.

Throughout fourteen years, the Symposium has become the most relevant academic event in the United Kingdom for Mexican students and researchers.

This year, the XV Symposium of Mexican Students and Studies will be held on 12-14 July 2017 at Durham University.

The objective of this event is to bring together the Mexican student community in the UK, as well as students and academics interested in Mexican studies, across the following areas:

  • Science and Technology
  • Politics, Society and Human Rights
  • Arts and humanities
  • Sustainability
  • Health
  • Special panel on Energy

With the slogan ‘Make it Happen’, we aim to promote collaborative work, innovative ideas and practical solutions which could generate a significant positive impact in the scientific, social, and political spheres in Mexico, and its role in the international community.

The Symposium will feature plenary sessions by renowned keynote speakers from different fields, in addition to panel discussions based on individual presentations and poster sessions from postgraduate students.

The full programme will be confirmed in the forthcoming weeks. For updates visit our website: symposiummx.com. We also invite you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter @MX_Symposium.
