Matias Romero and the Birth of Mexican Diplomacy

This talk will focus on the life and legacy of Matias Romero, one of the most celebrated diplomats in Mexican history, through the lens of Sergio Silva Castañeda and Graciela Márquez´s latest book, Matías Romero y el oficio diplomático: 1837-1898.

The book unearths a new portrait of Romero, one that depicts a lawyer and diplomat deeply knowledgeable of the United States and of Mexico, trying to fight prejudices on both sides and build bridges in the midst of an extremely unequal relationship . The book also casts Romero as intensely involved in the process of nation-building in Mexico at the same time he helped craft the nascent republic’s foreign policy. Join us and learn of the intimate connection between nation-building and foreign policy, through the gripping tale of Romero’s life.

Alberto Fierro, Executive Director of the Mexican Cultural Institute Casey Lurtz, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University
