Call For Papers

XXII Graduate Colloquium of Iberian and Latin American Languages and Cultures
Call For Papers-“Borders, Borderlands, and Border Crossings”


The graduate students of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Texas at
Austin are pleased to announce the XXII Graduate Colloquium to be held on March 24-­26, 2016. We
understand borders, in the broadest sense, as spaces where the intent to delineate, to define, and to exclude
lives alongside with transgressions, inclusions, and amalgamations. As areas of interaction at the edges of
empires, world systems and nations, they are sites for transnational and cross-­cultural relations. Borders
are spaces richly theorized but also always open to (re)definition and (re)imagination. We invite
collaborators to engage in dialogues across various registers concerning borders: geographic, temporal,
cultural, linguistic, corporal, political, and disciplinary. Papers on literature, linguistics, cultural studies
and interdisciplinary work are all welcome. Presentations may be given in Spanish, Portuguese or
English.
Keynote Speakers: Glenn A. Martínez, The Ohio State University and
Fernando Arenas, The University of Michigan
Special Invited Speakers: Celeste De Luna, Painter and Printmaker, South Texas College and
Sandra Lorenzano, Writer and Vicerrector, Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana
Topics may include but are not limited to:
● Race, Gender, Sexuality and Dis/ability
● Literature, Film, Music, New Media
● Visual, Sound and Performance Studies
● Geographic, Political, and Spatial Configurations
● Crossing disciplinary borders
● Sociolinguistics of borders
● Languages in contact
