The Social Significance of Student Movements in Mexico City During the Last Forty Years.
A historical and sociological study about the impact of student-led political movements on Mexican politics and public sentiment. A series of interviews and surveys will evaluate Mexican's opinions about student activism focusing on the two largest student political protests of the last forty years: the strikes in 1968 and 1999 through 2000. Interviews and surveys will include as broad as possible of a cross section of the population. Further research will be conducted at the UNAM (national university of Mexico) library and using resources of different organizations in Mexico City.
