The 18th Annual Hispanic & Lusophone Studies Symposium
GLOBALIZING DISCOURSES IN LUSO-HISPANIC CONTEXTS
April 10 - 11, 2015
The aim of the symposium is to unite various vantage points from which to view the role of globalization in the intersection of Luso-Hispanic cultures with the rest of the world in order to promote a critical, cross-disciplinary network of scholarship. How has technology shaped the power of discourse? How can we see the multidirectional flow of knowledge and culture through the process of globalization? Where and why are these exchanges asymmetrical? What types of patterns, anomalies or problems emerge within these contact zones? Which contemporary theoretical approaches could benefit from studying globalizing discourses that span the Luso-Hispanic speaking world? These are only a few possible questions to consider as participants prepare submissions for this symposium. As a reflection of this topic, papers that venture beyond the traditional dichotomy of Latin American/Peninsular or Hispanic/Luso-Brazilian studies are welcome and encouraged, as well as submissions from disciplines other than Luso-Hispanic Literatures and Cultures.
