Mexico : Mineral Stories - Conference in Spanish
Discover Sorbonne University and the National Autonomous University of Mexico’s latest conference, dedicated to Mexico’s sweeping mineral history.
Conference conducted in Spanish.
On October 27th
14:00 - 15:30
Online on Zoom
In person at Room 116, 1st floor, block 44-54 (access via Tower 44), Campus Pierre et Marie Curie, 4 Place Jussieu, Paris 75005.
The conference, led by Sorbonne University and its longtime strategic partner UNAM, is set to highlight the fascinating history behind the Sorbonne University Mineral Collection’s latest exhibition, Mexico: Mineral Stories.
Minerals have long occupied a central place in the history of Mexico, and held an array of important functions over thousands of years, from the sacred to the scientific, aesthetic to political. The study of minerals parallels the study of human history, revealing important insights into the complex relationship between the Earth and those who inhabit it.
The conference will take place on October 27 from 2pm to 3:30pm, both online and at the Sorbonne University Pierre et Marie Curie Campus in Paris, with expert presentations from a member of both academic communities. The conference will be conducted primarily in Spanish, with supporting materials in French.
