2012 Lozano Long Conference - Central Americans and the Latino/a Landscape: New Configurations of Latina/o America

Fri, February 24, 2012 | Various Rooms, Teresa Lozano Long Institute for Latin American Studies, Sid Richardson Hall Unit 1, The University of Texas at Austin

9:30 AM - 6:30 PM

The 2012 Lozano Long Conference will take place on February 22–25, 2012 on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. Conference participants will initiate a dialogue about the locations and experiences framing the practices of the wide spectrum of Latino/a communities. Focusing on U.S. Central American populations whose role has been critical in the reconfiguration of Latino/a Studies in the first decade of the twenty-first century, this scholarly conversation and cultural interchange is of paramount importance, considering the continuous growth, visibility, and significance of Central Americans in the U.S. and Latino/a landscape. The purpose of this conference is to suggest that Latina/o America needs to be understood as a geographically displaced phenomenon with complex connections of commodities, people, and cultural production.
