Cultural Encounters in the Luso-Hispanic World
University of Warwick
Friday 31 May – Saturday 1 June 2013
SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
Encounters shape our experience of the world. They might be strategic or spontaneous, embraced or resisted, momentary or ongoing; they might involve individuals, communities, nations, or any number of formations; their effects might be transformative, destructive, creative, or simply go unnoticed; but it is through our relations with others, however defined, that we begin to articulate our place in the world.
This two-day conference, organized by Hispanic Studies at the University of Warwick, will bring together an interdisciplinary mix of researchers to discuss the implications and resonances of the cultural encounters, exchanges and interactions that have shaped the Luso-Hispanic world and its relations with the rest of the globe across time. Our confirmed keynote speakers are Professor Julio Ortega, Brown University, and Professor Benita Sampedro, Hofstra University.
We welcome interventions that investigate specific instances of encounter; that offer theoretical reflection on encounter from a Luso-Hispanic perspective; or that synthesize broader histories and geographies of encounter in which the Luso-Hispanic world has played a role.
