Saturday Lecture Series – Patricia Alatriste: What it Means to Be Mestizo

February 11th, 2017 – 11:30 am, MEL Garden

Mestizajes (mestizos), people of mixed blood, are a pivotal dynamic of human history and development. What does it mean to be mestizo; to inherit several cultures and genes? México provides a rich and complex example for exploring that question. In this lecture Sra. Patricia Alatriste, a university professor and psychologist in love with Méxican history, will talk about the experience of mixing people and cultures that are the foundation of the Méxican soul.

Professor Alatriste has forty years of experience as a Professor of Human Development and Education at Universidad Autónoma de México (UNAM) and the Universidad Iberoamericana.
