Media in Mexico
Somewhat late notice, I know, but a couple of friends are involved in a panel discussion about Mexican comic books at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard tonight. Here's the 411:

Historietas in Mexico
6 p.m., Friday, Feb. 15

This documentary screening and mini-symposium will explore historietas, pocket-sized comics that offer a raw and subversive view of simmering class hatreds, racial tensions, and gender conflict in Mexican society. Speakers will include Ana Merino, Assistant Professor, Foreign Languages and Literatures at Appalachian State University; Ernesto Priego, National Autonomous University of Mexico; Daniel K. Raeburn, editor of comics magazine "The Imp"; and filmmaker/journalist Greg Gransden. Moderated by Tom Devlin, publisher of Highwater Books. The film will be in Spanish with English subtitles. Discussion will be in English. 6-8 p.m. DRCLAS, 61 Kirkland. Contact: Greg Gransden
