Lourdes Arizpe was born in Mexico City and grew up travelling with her family to all regions of Mexico, an itinerary that drew her attention to the rich diversity of indigenous cultures. Her home was also multicultural, as her Mexican father and Swiss mother, as well as her parents, were multilingual. While at grammar school at an American school in Mexico City, she plunged into literature, both in English and in French, which she studied with a French teacher who opened up her library to her. A few years later she received a First in English Studies at the British Council and the First Place Award in the final course on Advanced Studies in French language and history at the French Institute for Latin America. After taking the SAT examination, they placed her in the Honors English Class at the University of the Pacific in California and she made it to the Dean’s List during her stay there. She also studied to be an interpreter in Geneva University, Switzerland and received a Certificate in French Studies. Upon her return to Mexico, she studied history at the National University of Mexico, then an M.A. in ethnology from the National School of History and Anthropology in 1970 and a PhD. in social anthropology from the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK in 1975.
