For the past seven years, Merida English Library has sponsored a lecture series from mid-October to mid-April.
They try to include a wide range of speakers and subjects.
There are always a couple of talks about some aspect of the history of Mexico or the Yucatan or the city of Merida.
MEL usually offers a lecture or two about the Maya – their architecture, spiritual beliefs or customs. Sometimes an archaeologist discusses something exciting about a newly discovered ruin or offer a new look at a well-known archaeological site.
Mixed in among these “academic” topics might be talks about backyard composting in the city, the advances of solar power technology in the state of Yucatan, recent changes in Mexico’s immigration laws, or how to become a “bird watcher.”
Most of the programs are free; for some, there is a nominal suggested donation.
Some of the upcoming lectures are:
- March 7 – Dr. Alma Duran – Maximilian, Carlota and the Importance of Yucatán during the Second Mexican Empire
- March 14 – Jorge Rosado – La Mejorada neighborhood in Merida
- March 21 – Going Solar in Merida – The ins and outs of converting to solar energy
