Local Event!! Día de los Muertos: The Significance of Death in Mexican Culture

For all of our local New Mexico Readers:

We are very excited to announce our first in a series of six free workshops on teaching about about Día de los Muertos. 2014-09-10_Dia-de-los-Muertos_The-Significance-of-Death-in-Mexican-Culture

In this workshop, “Día de los Muertos: The Significance of Death in Mexican Culture,” we will explore the history of Día de los Muertos; tour the intriguing exhibit on “Skulls and Sickles” on display at the UNM Zimmerman Library (which considers the visual rhetoric of death in Mexican art); hear a special lecture on the topic from Dr. Suzanne Schadl, curator and coordinator of UNM’s Latin American library collections; and discuss ways to meet Common Core reading and writing standards while exploring this meaningful celebration.

The workshop will be held on September 10th from 5:00-8:00 pm at the Latin American and Iberian Institute, UNM. If you have any questions or to register, email Keira at kphilipp@unm.edu
