Additional Information

Presented by Yvette Martinez-Vu

Among Latino communities in southern California, multiple botánicas offer immigrant populations ways to create and sustain support systems through object-centered syncretic practices.

Discussion will focus on the ways that glass candles sold in one botánica are continually surrogated to set in motion a series of performances that produce spaces of cultural and economic capital as well as communities of female solidarity and survival.
