This book presents major texts by Prof. Dr. Lourdes Arizpe Schlosser, a pioneering Mexican anthropologist, on the occasion of her 70th birthday. She is a leading researcher into indigenous peoples, an innovator in women’s studies and a global scientific leader who has inspired the international research and policy communities. Throughout her distinguished career she has analysed ethnicism and indigenous peoples, women in migratory flows, cultural and social sustainability and intangible cultural heritage as social capital, placing these issues on the world agenda for research and policy. Several of the 12 major texts in this volume have been published since 1972 in the US, Europe, Latin America and India; some were first published in Spanish and are available in English for the first time.

This book presents a selection of major research texts, published and unpublished, by Prof. Dr. Lourdes Arizpe Schlosser, a Mexican Pioneer in Anthropology. A global intellectual leader on culture, social development, sustainability, women’s studies and indigenous groups, her texts provide both an outlook on the evolution of specific social scientific concepts and historical debates and a long-term and meta-analytical perspective integrating academic and policy discussions. By linking debates from different fields, the book helps readers to understand why people and groups make the choices they make and how the principles of social life must change to meet the challenges that new generations face in building social sustainability and effective environmental management in the twenty-first century.

Reseña: La reconocida antropóloga social Lourdes Arizpe Schlosser es precursora en los estudios sobre desarrollo sustentable y pieza clave en un importante movimiento de revitalización de las ciencias sociales en México y Latinoamérica que vincula la investigación con la acción ciudadana. La autora inició estudios antropológicos sobre las migraciones, la equidad de género, los reclamos de los grupos indígenas y de la sociedad civil, y las percepciones sociales sobre la sustentabilidad. Gran parte de su obra fue escrita a través de su participación internacional, por ejemplo, en la Comisión Mundial para la Cultura y el Desarrollo, en el Grupo de Personas Eminentes para el Diálogo de las Civilizaciones, en la Comisión de Naciones Unidas de Políticas de Desarrollo y en la UNESCO, en donde apoyó la creación de la Convención Internacional para la Salvaguarda del Patrimonio Cultural Inmaterial y los trabajos sobre diversidad cultural. Lourdes Arizpe, a través de sus investigaciones, analiza con bisturí por qué se detuvo el desarrollo del campo y de la transición democrática, recoge una memoria imprescindible para las ciencias sociales y ofrece propuestas para restaurar la sustentabilidad social en el país. Vivir para crear historia permite redescubrir un México dividido y convulsionado que aún no encuentra salida a los múltiples problemas de la desigualdad, la conviviabilidad, la identidad cultural y la participación social.

    Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM)

    The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) was founded on September 21st, 1551 under the name Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico. It is the biggest and most important university in Mexico and Ibero-America.

    As part of the Centennial Celebrations of Mexican Independence, the National University was officially created on September 22, 1919. With the intention of widening educational opportunities in the country, the effort to launch the National University, though often hampered by adversity, was initially spearheaded by Congressman Justo Sierra in 1881. His vision finally materialized in 1910 with the inauguration of the National University of Mexico at a ceremony held in the National Preparatory School Amphitheatre, where as Secretary of Public Instruction, Sierra told the audience that the thrust of the National University’s educational project was to concentrate, systematize and disseminate knowledge in order to prepare the Mexican people for the future. One-hundred years after the creation of the University, Justo Sierra’s inaugural address still rings true: (…) we are telling the university community today that truth is unfolding: go seek it (…) you have been charged with the realization of a political and social ideal which can be summed up thus: democracy and liberty.

    The fundamental aim of the UNAM is to serve both the country and humanity, train professionals, organize and carry out research, mainly on national problems and conditions, and offer cultural benefits in the broadest sense possible.
