Description:

"The Day of the Dead
El Día de los Muertos: Mexican Traditions of Remembrance"

Mexicans celebrate the Día de los Muertos the first two days of November, a tradition that has survived the passage of time throughout Mexico and beyond—but not without cultural change and reinvention. Professor Carrillo takes us on a multimedia journey as he explores how Indigenous Mexican rituals of remembering the dead have become intertwined with European traditions, political ideologies, and consumerism on both sides of the border to yield a fascinating fusion of cultures.

This year, ENHLS will honor the Latino American experience, as part of the "Hecho in the U.S.A" program, which explores various aspects of Latino/Latina culture.
