"In 1997 Donna J. Guy and I published a bibliography of sexuality studies on Latin America in our edited book Sex and Sexuality in Latin America (New York University Press, 1997), including studies in a wide variety of fields. This bibliography was updated for the Spanish edition of that book, Sexo y sexualidades en América Latina (Paidos, Buenos Aires, 1998); that version included a number of items that had come to our attention after we turned in the book to NYU. Interestingly, the number of publications in Latin America (and in Spanish and Portuguese) increased in that brief period, and continues to increase. Adán Griego has added his own bibliography and has agreed to maintain it and keep it current. The bibliography that follows is based on the previous ones but has the advantage of not being fixed in time." —— Daniel Balderston, 1999

Celebrating Mexico: The Grito de Dolores and the Mexican Revolution 1810 | 1910 | 2010
Celebrating Mexico: The Grito de Dolores and the Mexican Revolution 1810 / 1910 / 2010 was an exhibition which took place from September 2010 to January 2011 in the Peterson Gallery & Munger Rotunda of Green Library, Stanford University, and concurrently at the Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley. The exhibitions, which showcased the extensive Mexican collections at both institutions, commemorated the 200th anniversary of Mexico's independence from Spain and the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, two critical periods in Mexico's struggle for sovereignty and the self-determination of its peoples.
On this website we provide information about the exhibition and the catalogue created for this special occasion, and we have the opportunity to showcase some of the materials in the Stanford University Libraries' collections that indeed celebrate Mexico, from the Grito de Dolores to the Mexican Revolution and beyond.
