The Symposium Committee is pleased to invite all interested graduate students, scholars and professionals to submit presentation or poster abstracts, and panel proposals for the 28th Annual Graduate and Professional Symposium on Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literature, Language and Culture at the University of Arizona. Join us to celebrate the merging of cultures and languages in one of the US’s oldest multicultural landscapes. Come to a historic city where languages, cultures and literatures co-exist creating a thriving contact zone.

This year the symposium will focus on exploring and engaging with tangential disciplinary and theoretical approaches that have not been fully developed in the field of Hispanic and Luso- Brazilian literature, cultural studies, and linguistics. The objective of the symposium is to open new avenues of thought and establish new interdisciplinary dialogues that will promote the advancement of Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian literature, cultural, and linguistic studies.
The Symposium Committee will consider abstracts for research in Latin American and Peninsular Cultures, Literatures and Linguistics. Potential areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Linguistic: Applied linguistics, Heritage/second language pedagogy, Language program administration, L2/Ln acquisition, Phonology/phonetics, Morphology, Sociolinguistics, Syntax, Psycholinguistics, Any other area of Hispanic/Lusophone linguistics within any theoretical or quantitative/qualitative framework.

Literature: Global South studies, Border studies, Disability studies, Feminist theory, Queer theory, Hegemony and posthegemony, Subaltern studies, Political theory, Postcolonial theory, Affect theory, Memory studies, Visual studies.
