Conference reports XVII International Congress of the History of Religions Mexico City, August 1995: A retrospective BRUCE B. LAWRENCE It has been over a year since the seventeenth quinquennial conference of the International Association of the History of Religions (IAHR) took place in Mexico City. It was my first trip to Mexico, and my first experience of the IAHR format. Both were unusual, and also stimulating, though nei- ther matched my anticipation of them. Mexico City, I was told, would be sweltering hot in early August, so rife with pollution that I would have trouble walking except in the early morning and late evening hours. Traffic would be horrendous, street crime rampant. Wrong, wrong, wrong, at least for that first - and only - week in August that I was in Mexico City. The air was clear enough to enjoy long walks from my hotel (the Maria Christina on Rio Lerma) to the Claustro de Sor Juana, over a mile away in the historic centre of Mexico City. Taxis were easily available, if needed, for the return trip to the hotel. They were also dirt cheap. No one accosted me, either for begging or thieving. Crowds were less
