DANBURY, Conn. -- Western Connecticut State University in Danbury will host a discussion on important themes in Mexican history in Alumni Hall on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 10:50 a.m. 

The guest lecturer will be California Institute of Technology and University of Southern California lecturer Dr. Gloria Arjona. She will cover five important themes to Mexican culture: the pre-Colombian era, the conquest, the colonial period, the revolution and globalization as well as other critical themes of Latin American culture. 

“Getting to know the diverse and hybrid cultures and art of Mexico is a great experience for all students whether they are taking Spanish classes or not. And, of course, it is a great event to highlight the interest in Hispanic and indigenous cultures of the Americas during October, designated in this country as Hispanic Heritage Month,” Dr. Galina Bakhtiarova, chair of the WCSU Department of World Languages and Literature said in a statement. 

Alumni Hall is located at 181 White St. in Danbury.
