Author Comment
Subject: Congratulations to the presenters!
The session went extremely well. The three papers entered a dynamic conversation and were rigorous enough to consider the issue of visual hybridity in colonial Latin America. I enjoyed it much and the discussion that followed was lively.
Thanks for three very well prepared and delivered papers.
