Encuentro 2018 is a convening to exchange ideas with fellow practitioners and advocates for Latin@ historic preservation that will be held April 26-28, 2018 in Providene, RI. Latin@s in Heritage Conservation invites proposals for posters on historic preservation as it relates to Latin@ peoples and sites across the United States, with a specific emphasis on the Northeast. Students are especially encouraged to submit proposals.

The Poster Session is a format to share case studies in Latin@ historic preservation. It offers an alternative for presenters eager to share their work and can be especially useful for works-in-progress, students seeking feedback, or first time conference attendees. It will be held on Friday, April 27, 2017 at the Roger Williams University Downtown Campus.

Topics Areas:

  • A site connected to Latin@ history that has been saved or lost.

  • A site connected to Latin@ history that has been designated, preserved, adapted, and/or reused or that is being considered for designation, preservation, adaptation, and/or reuse.

  • An example of historic preservation used for raising cultural awareness in the Latin@ community.
