The Library of Congress Celebrates Mexico

James H. Billington, Librarian of Congress, unveiled the first phase of the online exhibit “Distant Neighbors: The U.S. and the Mexican Revolution” in the Hispanic Reading Room on May 23, 2011.  H.E. Arturo Sarukhan, Ambassador of Mexico to the U.S., greeted the assembled audience.

Georgette Dorn, Chief of the Hispanic Division, then moderated a panel featuring three specialists in Mexico who gave presentations on Mexico’s 1810 and 1910 revolutions. Barbara Tenenbaum (Hispanic Division) described “Finding the Mexican Revolution at the Library of Congress,”  Roberto Breña (El Colegio de Mexico) spoke about “The Mexican Independence Process in the Atlantic Context,” and John Tutino (Georgetown University) addressed “National Commemorations, Scholarly Debates, and Public Conversations.”

Carlos González Manterola, coordinator of the 10-volume monographic series 20/10 Memorias de la revoluciones en México presented the work to the Library and discussed the project.

The online exhibit is being prepared by Barbara Tenenbaum, Everette Larson (Head of the Hispanic Reading Room), and Juan Manuel Pérez (Reference Specialist).
