He published a book titled Postcards From a PostMexican and spoke to the advanced study Spanish class, which focuses its studies on culture and history in the Spanish-speaking world.
Dr. Ramirez led a lively conversation about Mexico-United States relations, the Mexican Revolution, socio-political ties between the two countries and other topics in a block-long discussion. Dr. Ramirez was invited to speak to the class by Upper School Spanish teacher and World Languages Department Chair Bryan Cristóbal Sullivan.
