Building Publics 2022: Mobilities and the City: History and Current Challenges in Mexico City

Building Publics showcases how our Public Humanities Graduate Fellows bridge humanistic thinking with civic engagement and social justice, scholarly research with public building and communication in order to unleash new, more critical modes of scholarly imaginations.

Participants:

Andrei Guadarrama, Public Humanities Fellow and PhD Candidate in History

Mtra. Carlota Zenteno, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

Dr. Paula Soto Villagrán, Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana-Iztapalapa

Mtro. Andrés Lajous, Secretaría de Movilidad de la Ciudad de México

This year, the Museum of Mexico City will launch “Mobilities and the City,” an exhibit on the history of transportation in the twentieth-century. In this event we will address the questions that drive the exhibition—how did Mexico City transform from a walking city into a landscape dominated by streetcars in the early twentieth century, and into an automobile city by the mid-century? What are the past and present-day consequences of this process? What are the current challenges for the mobilities in a metropolis of over 22 million residents? After showcasing key exhibit materials, we will have a conversation on history and transport policy around issues such as urban growth, public and private transportation, violence, and inequalities in Mexico City.

This event will be conducted in Spanish.

  • Free and open to the public
  • Registration required. See details.
