Mexico Week 2012

The University of Southampton and MeXsu hosted Mexico Week, between 28 October and 3 November 2012.

Programme of events

Focusing on the University’s research on Mexico, its exchange programmes with Mexico, and its strong teaching curricula on Mexico, the aim of Mexico Week was to share our enthusiasm for Mexico with colleagues, friends and the wider community from across the city while highlighting the global backdrop of the University.

We offered events from theatre productions, classical and popular music, mariachis bands, lectures on Mexico, films by Mexican directors, Mexican food and drink, and opportunities to practise (Mexican) Spanish. We aimed to involve as wide a range as possible of Southampton residents, old and young. The timing of this week coincided with the well-known Mexican celebrations of the Day of the Dead, for which there was an Altar set up at the Avenue Campus.
