Meeting Description: 

Lisa Breglia is Director of the Global Affairs Program and Global Interdisciplinary Programs. She received her PhD in Cultural Anthropology from Rice University and her work appears in numerous edited volumes and journals. Her 2006 book, Monumental Ambivalence: the Politics of Heritage (University of Texas Press) examines the struggle over national patrimony between public interests and private sector development in Maya archaeological across the Yucatán Peninsula. Her new book extends her interests in the politics of natural and cultural resources––not only in Mexico but in a global context. Living with Oil (2013, UT Press) is an ethnographic investigation of the effects of Mexico's intensive offshore oil industry on Gulf coast communities. Prof. Breglia's latest research is a comparative study of heritage tourism in Mexico and Colombia.
