The papers presented at the 2012 Mayer Center symposium will address the spectrum of daily life in colonial Latin America—from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Topics include the quotidian details of women's clothing and household furniture, local festivals and Indian dances, as well as grand pageants to celebrate the arrival of new viceroys and to mourn the deaths of Spanish royalty. Specialists in the arts and history of Latin America will travel from Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, and the United States to present recent research.

Symposium hours: Friday 9:30 am–5 pm, followed by a cocktail reception.  Saturday 9:30 am–12:30 pm (doors open at 9:30 am)
