Four faculty fellows from Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino Studies have recently published their first books. The Institute will host a book launch and reception on Monday, February 3, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in McKenna Hall, honoring affiliated faculty members Jaime Pensado, Yael Prizant, Ricardo Ramírez, and Jason Ruiz.
Pensado, The Carl E. Koch Assistant Professor of History in the University’s College of Arts and Letters, published Pensado’s Rebel Mexico: Student Unrest and Authoritarian Political Culture during the Long Sixties (Stanford University Press, 2013). His work traces the rise, growth, and consequences of Mexico’s “student problem” during the long sixties (1956-1971).
