The 25th Edition of the Annual Hispanic and Lusophone Studies Symposium (OSUHALSS)


March 25th - 26th, 2022



The Graduate Students in the Spanish and Portuguese Department at The Ohio State University invite graduate students, professors, and interested researchers to participate in the 25th virtual edition of the Annual Hispanic and Lusophone Studies Symposium. On this occasion, we invite interested scholars to reflect and engage in a dialogue about any aspect of literatures and cultures in the Luso-Hispanic world, with an emphasis on race and gender. We aim to create a collaborative environment in which we can critically discuss issues and concerns, while establishing a dialogue between time, space, subjects, theories, and practices.
We welcome proposals for traditional papers, as well as other formats, including performance, creative writing, and video essay, among others. We accept proposals written in Spanish, Portuguese, and English.

Desirée Bela-Lobedde, Independent activist
Dr. Cristina Burneo Salazar, U. Andina Simón Bolívar
