Mexico is a country proud of its past while it adjusts to the present and sets the stage for the future.
With specific examples drawn from Mexico's current presidential administration, Goth will provide insight into understanding how Mexico successfully faces the challenges of being a capitalist country with a socialist constitution. How as a predominantly
Catholic country, Mexico embraces today's gender issues. How, as a poor country, Mexico also faces having the world's second highest level of income inequality. As a democracy with three main parties every citizen’s vote is of equal value. A presidential candidate can win the election with slightly
more than a third of the votes.

We all need sleep, but sometimes it gets neglected. Restful sleep is as important as diet and exercise, and is essential for maintaining good health, energy, learning and memory. Come to this workshop to discuss common sleeping problems and learn new ways to get your zzzs.
The calacas: In Mexican usage a calaca is a skull.
In Mexican journalism a calaca is an
obituary poem announcing the death of a well-known person – even though that
person is alive and well.
Mexico’s skilled political cartoonists have taken calacas to a new level by accompanying
the poems with drawings. Through this type of unique macabre -- though
tastefully presented – is meant to be humorous. Professor Charlie Goth, along with the audience,
will decipher who each cartoon character presents in real life, and why that
person is deserving of being portrayed. The content of each poem will
deal with Mexican current events.
Come with an open mind. Characters in the cartoons will
certainly include candidates in the U.S. elections -- they too have been
present in Mexican news this year.
