By Jonathan Weber In late nineteenth century Mexico City, corpses of the urban poor constituted a significant threat to President Porfirio Díaz's modernization program. This presentation will explore how state officials implemented various transportation modes for corpses—the railroad, carriage, and electric tram—to illustrate that the capital city was indeed capable of 'order and progress.' Jonathan Weber teaches Latin America and United States history at the Greenhill School. He is a PhD candidate at Florida State University in the Department of History.
