By Mark Bilker

Carlos Bravo Regidor, considered an important Mexican political commentator, will discuss the state of the July 1 Mexican presidential election, its historical significance and possible consequences, and how anticipated major changes due to the election may impact the country’s substantial expat community at Hotel Aldea’s Colonial Salon on June 4.

The program will be presented by the San Miguel chapter of Democrats Abroad and provides support to its nonpartisan, 2018 GOTV (Get Out The Vote) San Miguel de Allende drive. All proceeds from the event will go toward the GOTV effort, thanks to the generosity of underwriting sponsors.

Bravo is the director of the journalism program at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (Center for Research and Teaching in Economics), known as CIDE, a public research center in social sciences based in Mexico City. He has written analyses and op-ed pieces for Letras Libres, El Universal, The New York Times en Español, The Conversation, and Reforma, and is frequently quoted in interviews by NPR and Televisa, The Washington Post and The New Yorker.

A commentator on Mexican and US politics, Bravo has appeared on radio and

TV programs that include Despierta con Loret, Así las Cosas in W Radio, Atando

Cabos with Denise Maerker, La Hora de Opinar with Leo Zuckermann, and Calle Once with Ricardo Raphael. His work has also been published in Proceso, Animal

Político, Vice News, The Guardian, The New Yorker, and The Atavist, to name a few, and he was recently nominated for a 2017 Gabriel García Márquez Award.

Bravo earned his BA degree in international relations from El Colegio de México, and also holds a master’s degree and a doctorate in history from the University of

Chicago. He has been a Fellow of the Fullbright-García Robles program and has received support from the Ford Foundation and the Mellon Foundation. His areas of academic expertise include political ideas, constitutional history, and elections and journalism, particularly in the US and Mexico.

A question and answer period follows this talk.

Tickets for Dr. Bravo’s presentation are available online at and in person at the front desk of Tesoros, the gift shop of La Biblioteca on Insurgentes.

Hotel Aldea offers onsite parking and handicap access to the Colonial Salon.
