Mexico City: Politics, Culture and Cuisine

Spend a week immersed in the history, politics and culture of this dynamic city. 

Join us on our inaugural visit to one of the world’s most dynamic cities, Mexico City. Filled with world-class museums, stunning modernist architecture, delicious food, and art-filled spaces, the city has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years. With a reformist president in the middle of his single six-year term (Andrés Manuel López Obrador, popularly known as AMLO), it’s a time of important change in the country. 

On this five-night program we will immerse ourselves in the culture of this spectacular city while also delving into the political and social issues that have shaped Mexico. We’ll meet with individuals working to improve conditions for the disenfranchised and those who can provide an insider’s perspective on the challenges and struggles that many of us have only seen reported through a US-centric lens. Our visit will coincide with Dead of the Dead, providing an opportunity to experience some of the festivities surrounding this unique Mexican holiday.
