María José Pérez Sián, a doctoral student at the University of Texas at Austin, writes about the 2022 Lozano Long Conference:
"In honor of the centennial of the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection, the 2022 Lozano Long Conference focuses on archives with Latin American perspectives in order to better visualize the ethical and political implications of archival practices globally. Thinking archivally in a time of COVID-19 has also given us an unexpected opportunity to re-imagine the international academic conference. ...The series as a whole is designed to engage with the work of individual speakers as well as to present valuable resources that will supplement the conference’s pre-circulated working papers and recorded presentations. By registering here, you may access pre-circulated materials, and attend our live-streamed keynote addresses and panel discussions scheduled for February 24-25, 2022. This new conference model, which will make online resources freely and permanently available, seeks to reach audiences beyond conference attendees in the hopes of decolonizing and democratizing access to the production of knowledge."
