The seminar is characterized by the participation of outstanding scholars as well as doctoral students in order to encourage the exchange of ideas at different levels, which allows for closer inter-institutional links and consolidation of the development of this discipline.

  • Inter-Institutional Seminar on Economic History

    The purpose of the seminar is the presentation of research progress and discussion on issues of interest to the community of economic historians of our country. Founded in 2008, to date it has hosted more than eighty seminars with the participation of distinguished researchers from both Mexican as well as many international research centers and universities. It encourages a vocation of openness and cross-disciplinary research, and therefore is not limited to economic history in a narrow sense of the term, but includes related fields, including the history of science and technology as well as the history of law. The focus of the seminar is not restricted to studies on Mexico, but extends to research on a broader geographic reach that can contribute to clarify relevant aspects of our historical past. To fulfill these purposes, the seminar is nourished by the debates and presentations of professors and researchers from Mexico and abroad.

Regular presentations by Mexican and international scholars allow for the presentation of research and for debatye. This forum seeks dialogue through the exercise of criticism and the exchange of ideas. It has proved key in the creation of the IberoAmerican Association of Social History which has hosted two international congreses to date.
  • Seminar of the History of Political Formation in Mexico, 17th to 20th Centuries

    The main objective of the seminar is to explore and explain various spheres of authority over four centuries, covering the years from 1521 to 1940, beginning with the viceroyalty of New Spain but also covering the history of the Mexican Recolmex_main. The seminar focuses on the study of relations of authority, that is, of the exercise of political power, and its legitimacy, in the modern and contemporary era. Not all the relations of authority must be considered as starting from the State, even though this is the traditional, institutional political paradigm: doing so, however, leads to the projection of institutional forms and concepts of the present on and over different historical situations but this inevitably leads historians to a revision of the liberal state of law. Founded by Dr. Andrés Lira, the seminar includes members from various academic institutions. The seminar emphasizes the diversity of place and time as well as the various characteristics of perceptible relations of authority in the history of Mexico. This seminar is not open to the colmex_main.
