Nightlife in Mexico City

5 Mar

Here is a reading by Carlos Monsivais about nightlife in Mexico City from The Mexico City Reader (Madison: University of Wisconsin Press, 2004). In years past, I have assigned an essay about the social aspects of Mexico City by Néstor García Canclini and its geography and politics; however, I believe that the more narrative aspects of Monsivais’ essay demonstrate the immediacy of cultural experiences in that city. Enjoy!

    Am I remembering correctly that Friday’s class is cancelled because of your brown bag talk?

      No, class will go as planned.
