Professor Alicia Kozameh (English) has returned from the city of Morelia, Mexico, where she was invited to the annual book fair, Fiesta del Libro y la Rosa, organized by UNAM Centro Cultural Morelia and UDIR UNAM Morelia, and took place during April 27, 28 and 29 at Calzada Fray Antonio de San Miguel, Centro Histórico.

Professor Kozameh spoke about the present feminist movement in comparison with the one during the 60’s and 70’s, and about the particular role of women as part of a constantly changing world, where solidarity and communication are key to building a strong community that is capable of fighting abuses against women. The title of the panel was Feminism and Human Rights, and also included Mexican author Adriana González Mateos and the Director of the School of Mathematics at IM UNAM, Lucero de Teresa.

On Saturday, April 28 she and Dr. Jaime Chavolla, professor of Latin American Literature from ENES UNAM, presented Professor Kozameh’s new poetry book Sal de sangres en guerra, the first of a series of five that will come out over the next few years.
