UTD's Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies Resumes
Its Educational Lecture Series With a Twist

RICHARDSON, Texas (Aug. 24, 2005) — The Center for U.S.–Mexico Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) has resumed its popular lecture series about topics of interest to both the United States and Mexico, but with a twist. This academic year, lectures are taking place both on the UTD campus and in Guanajuato, Mexico.

UTD has enjoyed a collaborative relationship and scholarly exchange with several Mexican institutions of higher education for the last 10 years.

Now in its fifth year, the lecture series offers varying perspectives about arts and technology, public administration, mathematics and physics, science education, Mexican political decentralization and 20th-century Mexican classical and chamber music.

The lectures are free and open to the public and conclude with a question-and-answer session. Questions about the times and precise locations of the lectures, as well as other matters related to the talks, should be directed to Gabriela Carrera at 972-883-6401, or visit the center’s website at http://www.utdallas.edu/research/cusms/ls.htm.

The first of the lectures was held on Aug. 12, when Dr. Thomas Linehan, co-director of UTD’s Interactive Institute of Arts and Engineering, and Pablo Trinidad spoke at the Mexican Research Center for Mathematics (CIMAT) in Guanajuato, Mexico about Computerized Animation: A Mathematical Perspective.

The schedule for the rest of the series is as follows:
