Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center, Latin American and Latino Studies Program, and Anthropology Department.
Learn more about the importance of markets for people in Mexico and how communities look at the social, political, and economic aspects of large public markets. Join us for an interactive panel discussion where participants will share their perspectives from their experiences in the UIC Chiapas Study Abroad Program and long-term research in the region.
How and why have large public markets evolved in rural and urban places in Chiapas, Mexico? Have markets, where you can find just about anything, developed out of economic necessity, or have other cultural and historical factors come into play in their creation in Mexico?
