The Fourth International Colloquium on the History of Women and Gender in Mexico will be held from March 14-16 at El Colegio de Michoacán in Zamora, Michoacán, Mexico.   This forum will bring together more than sixty specialists on Precolumbian, colonial y modern Mexico to discuss the ways in which gender relations and gender ideologies have shaped the course of events in diverse regions of the country.

Topics addressed include: Gendered bodies; Gender and work; Beliefs and believers; Social construction of femininities and masculinities; Women and men in politics; Intersection of gender, class and ethnicity; Education, gender and written culture; Everyday family life; and Science, technology and gender.  

The keynote speech will be given by Dr. Lynn Stephen, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at the University of Oregon. This renowned feminist scholar focuses on the ways that political identities articulate with ethnicity, gender, class and nationalism in relation to local, regional and national histories, cultural politics and systems of governance in Latin America.  The title of her speech is: "Gender, Class, Ethnicity and Citizenship in Mexico: The Long Twentieth Century."

The event will be transmitted live via Internet. For more information, consult www.colmich.edu.mx/proyectos/redmugen <http://www.colmich.edu.mx/proyectos/redmugen>
