Leticia Pérez

I obtained my Masters Degree in Museology at the Escuela Nacional de Conservación, Restauración y Museografía del Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) in México, where I am currently a professor and Coordinator of Post Graduate Studies Program in Museology. My research interests are focused in Visitor Studies and International Exhibitions, mainly concerning the reception and appreciation audiences in other countries may have upon encountering displays of Mexican Culture.

Previously I worked in the creation and operation of the Interactive Museum of Economy (MIDE) in Mexico City as Coordinator of Visitor Studies. I then became Sub-director of International Exhibitions at INAH´s National Museum Coordination, participating in the organization and planning of numerous exhibition projects of international scale. During an internship at Spain´s Ministerio de Cultura, I collaborated with the Ibermuseos Program in the implementation of the Observatorio Iberoamericano de Museos. I have given talks and conferences in Mexico, and recently a course for the Programa de Posgraduación Interunidades en Museología at the University of Sao Paulo, Brasil.
