“The Bittersweet History of Life and Labor in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico in the 19th Century”
After dinner and a rum tasting, Professor Mathews will discuss the fascinating and sometimes brutal, history of the boutique rum trade in southern Mexico. Utilizing research methods including archaeology, archival research, riding on historic trains, interviews with local Maya peoples as well with contemporary rum makers in the United States, Dr. Mathews has developed a vibrant picture of the 19th century sugarcane and rum industry in the middle of the jungles of the Yucatán Peninsula.
