Mexico Symposium 2017


The XV Symposium of Mexican Students and Studies will take place at Durham University from the 12th to the 14th of July 2017.

The Symposium of Mexican Students and Studies is an annual multidisciplinary meeting that provides a forum to present current academic work, exchange knowledge and ideas. Throughout fourteen years, the event has become the most relevant academic event in the United Kingdom for students and academics interested in Mexico.

The objective of this event is to bring together the Mexican student community and those interested in Mexican issues, across five different topics:

    • Science and Technology
    • Politics, Society and Human Rights
    • Arts and humanities
    • Sustainability
    • Health

With the slogan ‘Make it Happen’ we aim to promote and foster collaborative work, innovative ideas and practical solutions that can create a major positive change in the cultural, social, scientific and political spheres in Mexico, and its role in the international community. The symposium will feature plenary sessions by high-level speakers from different fields of knowledge, as well as individual oral and poster presentations from postgraduate students.

The full programme will be confirmed in the forthcoming weeks. For updates visit our website: We also invite you to ‘like us’ on our Facebook page and to follow us on Twitter @MX_Symposium.
