Josh Gorman reports on museums conference in Mexico City

Josh Gorman is a doctoral student in the Department of History at The University of Memphis. He sent the following report and photographs from a recent conference that he attended in Mexico City:

Dear Colleagues,

My attendance at the sixth annual conference for the University Museums and Collections Committee of ICOM [International Council of Museums] has been a resounding success thus far. My presentation concerning the intellectual foundations for exhibitions and programming at Chucalissa was well-received, generating many questions and leads for further reading and research. The facilities provided by the National Autonomous University (UNAM) are fantastic - the University serves 300,000 students on a campus the size of a small city. Below are a couple of pictures of the city and of Teotihuacan that I took the morning before the conference started.
