At this event, two journalists give us a view of Ecatepec, in Mexico State, which has many of the characteristics, problems and dreams of contemporary Mexican society. Lydiette Carrión, a Mexican journalist and author, writes on the topic of violence against women in her native country. She is the author of the book La fosa de agua, an investigation that documents cases of femicide in the municipalities of Tecámac and Ecatepec in Mexico State. Emiliano Ruiz Parra (Mexico City, 1982) studied Hispanic Language and Literatures and has been a reporter for Reforma and a contributor to Gatopardo magazine. His most recent publication, Golondrinas: Un barrio marginal del tamaño del mundo (Debate, 2022), is his fourth book of literary non-fiction. Since 2020 he has been a member of the Investigative Reporting Unit and works with the Corriente Alterna site, an initiative run by UNAM’s Department of Cultural Dissemination. These two writers will talk to Felipe Rosete about the problems that beset the city of Ecatepec.
