Howard Campbell, professor of anthropology at the University of Texas at El Paso, will give a talk on the current outbreak of drug-related violence in Mexico, particularly in the area bordering the United States at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 6 in Plaster Student Union, Room 313.
Campbell is the author of “Drug War Zone: Frontline Dispatches from the Streets of El Paso and Juárez.” In this anthropological study of drug trafficking and anti-drug law enforcement efforts on the U.S.-Mexico border, Campbell uses an ethnographic perspective to chronicle the recent Mexican drug war, focusing especially on people and events in the El Paso/Juárez area. It is the first social science study of the violent drug war that is tearing Mexico apart.
