"The 2018 Lozano Long Conference, 'Create, Consume, Collect: Past and Modern Lives of Spanish American Artifacts,' will provide a forum to reflect on these questions. Scholars from Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Venezuela, and the United States will explore methodological questions generated by the interdisciplinary approaches to material culture such as art historical interpretation, anthropological inquiry, and conservation analysis. We will reflect on the meanings and original contexts of the manufacture of artifacts such as books, textiles, furniture, paintings, pottery, and buildings. We will also interrogate their social lives in the present and their future roles in community relations."
