UPCOMING LECTURES:

Wednesday December 4th:  "Before Uxmal and Chichen Itza - Exploring 10 Maya Classic and Pre-Classic sites in the Yucatan" by Bob Caskey

Wednesday December 11th:  "Mexico Through the Colors of Three Versatile Artists: Gerardo Murillo , Juan O'Gorman, Alfredo Zalce" by Marina Aguirre

The MEL Lecture series runs from mid-October to mid-April with topics as varied as the interests of our community. We seek out a wide range of speakers and subjects; you can learn more about the Merida, the Yucatan, and Mexico at large from anthropologists, historians, archaeologists, and other experts. We also feature lectures about the Maya – their architecture, spiritual beliefs or customs. Mixed in among these regular academic topics we feature lectures about more eclectic topics; everything from backyard composting in the city to the state of solar power technology and the recent changes in Mexico’s immigration laws, or how to become a “birder.”
Our lectures are held on Wednesday evenings from 7 PM to 8 PM and admission is free!
