Harvard has issued new and stringent guidelines in relation to COVID-19 that limit the museum’s ability to deliver select programs through April 30. As of now, museum galleries remain open to the public. Updates on public activities will be posted on the museum website and social media channels.

Mexican authors Octavio Paz, Carlos Fuentes, José Emilio Pacheco, Salvador Novo, Rubén Bonifaz Nuño, and Rosario Castellanos, among others, have sought to use language to explore and recover the links between Mexico’s Indigenous peoples and its contemporary society. Focusing on Mexico’s pre-Hispanic past, Juan Villoro will explore the intimate and evocative relationships among literature, archaeology, and culture.
