Festival of International Books and Arts 2010: Remembering the Revolution: A Study of the Impact of the Mexican Revolution

The preparation and implementation of a week-long multidisciplinary conference on the Mexican Revolution.

The Festival of International Books and Arts (FESTIBA) is an annual event which takes place during the last week of March at the University of Texas-Pan American. The theme of FESTIBA 2010 is to study the impact of the Mexican Revolution on the language, literature, culture, and role of women in South Texas. Since 2010 will be the centennial anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican Revolution, this study will create a timely opportunity for faculty, students, and community members of South Texas to investigate the profound effect of this chapter of Mexican history on our region and culture. The ultimate goal of FESTIBA 2010 is to bring outstanding scholars to our university and community who will contribute their expertise, encourage intellectual inquiry and exchange, and improve our capacity to understand and thereby teach the humanities.
