ecent trends in global capitalism have transformed the university into a corporation interested in the production of “excellence” rather than a representation of the national state.1 In the late 1940s, however, Latin American states were heavily invested in the building of new universities that would help to promote their image as socially progressive and technologically forward-looking societies. Mexico had lived through a dramatic revolution at the beginning of the twentieth century, and the post-revolutionary regimes were particularly committed to providing universal education. The symbolism attached to the university was so strong that the new campus for the Universidad Nacional Autonónoma de Mexico (UNAM), the oldest public university in the country, was inaugurated on November 20, 1952, the day that commemorates the beginning of the Mexican Revolution. The new university constituted a visible emblem of the revolution’s ambition to achieve a fair distribution of the country’s assets and free universal education for all.
