The Hispanic immigrant community has played a fundamental role in the growth of the city in the last decade. In the streets it is more and more common to hear conversations held in Spanish. However, it seems that this important trend is not reflected in universities. Why? A general crisis in the study of the humanities would be the answer. AL DÍA News spoke with professors from three of the most prominent universities in the city.

Spanish

Libertad de prensa a la mexicana. Es una manera triste, cínica quizás, de referirse a la interminable matanza de periodistas en el país azteca.  Perpetrada con total impunidad, todo indica que hay una cacería inmisericorde de comunicadores sociales al sur de la frontera.

Freedom of the press Mexican style.

It is a sad, even cynical way of referring to the unending slaughter of journalists perpetrated with impunity in our neighbor to the South, where it’s open season on freedom of speech.
