"The Promise & Legacy of the Mexican Revolution: 1910 – 2010"
Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas, one of the founders of the Partido de la Revolución Democrática (PRD) who served as mayor of Mexico City from 1997-99, will be teaching a course sponsored by Berkeley's Center for Latin American Studies in spring 2010. A civil engineer by training, Mr. Cárdenas held a number of technical posts before turning to politics in 1976, when he was elected Senator for the state of Michoacán as a member of the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI). In 1980, he ran successfully for governor of his home state and, in 1987, spearheaded the demand for internal party democratization which eventually led to the formation of the PRD. In addition to his duties as founding director of the Fundacion para la Democracia, he is active on the topics of energy and political reform.
