Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Daniel Hernández Joseph is a senior diplomat in Mexico introduces himself thus:

"I am a member of the Mexican foreign service with over 23 years experience in consular affairs. For many years, I've been specifically involved in the area of consular protection. Since most Mexican citizens abroad are concentrated in the US, my work has been closely related to the issues of immigration, human rights and labor rights in that country. That explains my interest in the subject of migration. However, I am developing this page purely on a personal basis.

My undergraduate training is in International Relations (Earlham College, Richmond, Indiana). My graduate degree is in Latin American Studies (University of Texas at Austin). Besides working as a consul and protection officer, I've also been cultural attache and have published a few short articles on subjects varying from art, to media analysis to consular protection."
