How do we do it?
Master Narratives are used to provide a background through which Mexican ideas and culture can be put into context. They include: "La Malinche’s Betrayal," "Guadalupe’s Catholic Rule," "Oppressive Center," and "Prosperous, Overbearing Neighbor." All individual topics fit into the narratives provided.
Narratives and topics serve both as conversation starters and formal study materials. They seek to answer specific questions about “Mexican ways” as well as offer new insights and angles from which to understand Mexico.
Our method offers participants a tool through which to analyze the country on their own, reaching their own conclusions. As there is not always a "right answer” when it comes to Mexico, Narratives function as keys that open doors to personal discovery.
The talks are based on material mostly from Mexican sources. This offers the chance to learn about Mexico using words, images, and insights from Mexicans themselves. In other words, we'll let Mexicans tell you about Mexico.
