10:00 AM A Conversation With Artist Jos-Mara Cano Jos
10:30 AM Worshop: The Mexico-California and Mexico-Texas Relationships If Texas and California were countries, they would be the second and third most important international relations for Mexico and many of its sub-State Governments (SSG), just after the U.S. and over countries like China, Canada, Germany, Great Britain or Spain. Mexico is the most important country for these two U.S. states and shares a border with both. However, the academic work on the relationship between Mexican and U.S. SSG is very scarce, and between the Mexican and U.S. federal governments and the SSG of the other country, it is practically nonexistent. This is especially true for the cases of Texas and California.

This workshop will serve as a place for us to explore ideas and proposals for the chapters of the book. We expect the authors to arrive at the workshop with an annotated index of their chapter, which will allow participants to discuss the content of each chapter.
