What can we learn from past and present preservation efforts in Latin America?

What does the future hold for historic urban areas in our part of the world?

What can we learn from one another?

Preservation Matters will discuss these issues with international experts Gustavo F. Araoz, AIA, President of the International Council of Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS); Isabel Rigo-Savio, Professor of Architecture and Historic Preservation, Havana, Cuba; Eduardo Rojas, Principal Urban Development Specialist, Inter-American Development Bank (IADB); and John H.

This is a Latin American Studies Conference, but creative writers, journalists, artists, performers, organizers, lawyers and healthcare providers as well as graduate students and other academics are welcome. Proposals are accepted in Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, and English.
