Anthropologist Charles Goff, director of the Cemanahuac Educational Community in Cuernavaca, Mexico, will deliver a lecture at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, at Assumption College on "Perception of Fear in Mexico: Time for a Change." The talk will be held in Assumption's La Maison Française Salon, and is free and open to the public.
Since 2006, perceptions of violence and fear in Mexico have been on the rise. Whether the H1N1 pandemic, the war on drugs, or the idea of a failed state -- news about Mexico has turned people away from the country. Goff's talk will explore what is behind this fear, how Mexicans face daily life, and how they they challenge negative perceptions. He will also introduce to the audience ways to navigate the future with respect to Mexico.
