This reading group aims to bridge the studies of Mexico and Mexican communities in the United States. We draw from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives and works to promote the shared study of binational Mexican communities, their histories, and their experiences. Our reading group is thus also a forum for the increasing intellectual and professional merging of the fields of Latin American and Latinx studies (of which Mexican and Mexican American history are part). As such, we seek to fill the gap for a shared intellectual space at Stanford for budding scholars of both Mexico and Mexicans in the United States.
