Colloquium: "20th Colloquium on Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Linguistics—Migrating Through Alternative Spaces in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Studies"

Fri, March 2, 2012 | TBA


The histories of both the Iberian Peninsula and the American Continent have been articulated through a multiplicity of migrations. Cultural migrations, ethno-racial migrations, political displacements, exile, migrations of thought and epistemologies, and shifting borders are a few aspects of migration that contribute to the narratives of our present historical moment. These migrations produce hybrid identities that often locate those who participate in them in liminal, displaced, queer or alternative spaces. The intellectual elaboration on these cultures, individuals, and alternative spaces can provide us with new ways of understanding our interactions on personal, national, and global levels.
