(March 27, 2014) -- The UTSA Mexico Center, UTSA Policy Studies Center and SABER es PODER will present a lecture by José Woldenberg, distinguished Mexican political scientist and sociologist. Free and open to the public, the event is 10-11:30 a.m., Tuesday, April 1 in the Frio Street Building Multipurpose Room (1.402) at the Downtown Campus.

Woldenberg oversaw the 2000 elections in which, for the first time in the country’s modern history, an opposition candidate, Vicente Fox, won the presidency of Mexico. His election effectively represented Mexico’s transition to a democratic system of government.

Woldenberg’s presentation will be in Spanish with simultaneous translation to English available. He will discuss present day sources of disenchantment with the emerging democracy in Mexico. His visit is a unique opportunity for UTSA students and faculty to hear the perspective of an actor who was directly involved in Mexico’s transition to democracy.

He is a founding member of the United Socialist Party of Mexico (PSUM), precursor of today’s left-leaning Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), and former director of NEXOS magazine.
