In this class we will explore the creation of the Mexican identity, as Mexican political and intellectual elites tried to unify people under a common nationality. We will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of such a project from different points of view. We will base our discussion on short stories, academic papers, movies, pop culture articles, etc. The course will start with a brief overview of the pre-Columbian and colonial times, moving later to Mexico’s independence and social revolution. We will also explore the relationship between Mexico and the United States, looking at times of conflict and cooperation between these two countries as well as at the challenges that immigration currently poses for both individuals and nations.
