Drug War talk by anthropologist Howard Campbell (A&S 100 Course)

flierThousands of people die in drug-related violence every year in Mexico. Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, adjacent to El Paso, Texas, has become the most violent city in the Mexican drug war. Much of the cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine consumed in the United States is imported across the Mexican border, making El Paso/Juárez one of the major drug-trafficking venues in the world.

La frontera entre El Paso y la cuidad de Juárez, México se ha convertido en una de las mayores áreas de tráfico de drogas. La cuidad de Juárez es una de las más peligrosas en México ya que es de ahí de donde provienen las drogas más comúnmente consumidas en Estados Unidos.

A&S 100 - Special Course: Viva Mexico! A Century of War & Peace

A short course offered this Spring 2014 Semester.

Although it has a population of 112 million people and shares a two thousand mile border with the United States, most people know very little about Mexico. In order to better our comprehension of this southern neighbor, this course traces Mexican history over the last century. Two wars circumscribe our period of study. We begin with the Mexican Revolution of 1910, the first social revolution of the twentieth century and the first revolution to be caught on film. We explore the political, economic, social, and cultural aspects of that revolution in order to understand its long-term impact. We conclude with the ongoing drug war, which has already taken the lives of 70,000 Mexicans. In order to understand the issues of war and peace in contemporary Mexico, we will establish a dialogue between the past and the present. Mexico has a rich and diverse culture. Therefore, we will also study cultural politics: gender relations and the changing role of women, the great diversity of indigenous Mexicans and their conditions, student politics and educational policies, and trends in music, art, and literature.

Curso corto para el semestre de Spring 2014.

Aunque tiene una población de 112 millones de personas y comparte una frontera de 2,000 milllas con Estados Unidos, es poco lo que la gente sabe de México. Este curso repasará la historia Mexicana del último siglo, en el cual hay dos guerras que marcaron al país y lo llevaron a ser el país que México es hoy en día. El curso comenzará con la Revuloción Mexicana de 1910 ya que eta fue la primera revolución social del Siglo XX  la primera revolución que fue documentada en video. Se estudiarán aspectos tanto políticos, económicos, sociales y culturales, ya que estos aspectos ayudan a entender el impacto que la revolución tuvo. El curso terminará con un estudio y análisis de a guerra que México lucha hoy en día, la guerra de drogas. Esta guerra ha sido causa de 70.000 muertes Mexicanas. Para poder entender la dinámica de la guerra del pasado y la de hoy en día se abrirán mesas de diálogue en las cuales se discutiran temas de igualdad, indígenas, mujeres, políticas educacionales y el arte.
