Senior Seminar Students Curate Public Exhibit In Special Collections

October 20, 2017

Students in Dr. Catherine Komisaruk's senior seminar class "Food and Cooking in Mexico," have completed the installation of a public exhibit in the JPL Special Collections.  The exhibit, titled "Alcohol and Social Class in Mexico," highlights various aspects of the production, marketing, and consumption of alcoholic beverages spanning over 150 years of Mexican History. 

The display is made up of items from UTSA's libraries, primarily Special Collections, that include the Mexican Cookbook Collection and the Mexican Spirits Collection.  Selected items showcase the complexity of social hierarchies that have characterized Mexican political, economic, and cultural life for centuries.

 

**The exhibit is now open and will run until the end of the Fall semester.  It's located just outside the Special Collections reading room on the 4th floor of the JPL.
