Please consider this invitation to submit an abstract on HIV/AIDS for the 2003 The International Colloquium for Vernacular, Hispanic, Historical, American and Folklore Studies which will take place in Puebla, Mexico from 9 to 12 October 2003.
Panels on HIV/AIDS as a theme in literature and culture of the Americas (i.e. North American Latino/a and Latin American) are currently being organized, and papers from all perspectives are welcome. Topics may include: a single writer, a comparative study, film studies, music studies, popular culture studies, and historical pieces which study HIV/AIDS from the perspective of the Americas.
The Vernacular Congress began as a cultural section of the Congress of the Americas, which itself was established after the 1994 economic crisis made
it difficult for Latin American academics to attend meetings in the United States. The 2001 Congress of the Americas attracted more than 900 papers.

Abstracts in English or Spanish, of 500-word maximum length, will be accepted until May 12, 2003. Please include a brief biography including current
academic affiliation. Please mail all abstracts and questions to the Area Chair: contact below.
Please feel free to forward this call to interested colleagues. Thanks-looking forward to seeing you in Puebla.
