This event podcast is of a lecture given by former Kellogg Institute Visiting Fellow Gema Kloppe-Santamaría, assistant professor of Latin American history at Loyola University, Chicago, on September 22, 2020. In it, she introduces her new book, In the Vortex of Violence: Lynching, Extralegal Justice, and the State in Post-Revolutionary Mexico (University of California Press, 2020), which examines the uncharted history of lynching in post-revolutionary Mexico. Based on an array of previously untapped historical sources, she examines the reasons behind the persistency of this practice during a period otherwise characterized by greater political stability and lower levels of violence.
