Speaker(s): 
Angela Garcia

The Confessional Community: Violence and Survival in Mexico City's Anexos In the past decade, coercive drug treatment centers called anexos (annexes) have proliferated throughout Mexico City's low-income neighborhoods. This talk explores confession within anexos and describes how it discloses projects of communitarian survival that are ethically affirmative. Angela Garcia is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Stanford University and author of The Pastoral Clinic: Addiction and Dispossession Along the Rio Grande.
