The Hispanic Studies Graduate Student Organization (HSGSO) of the Department of Hispanic Studies at the University of Houston cordially invites abstract submissions to the Second Annual conference in Hispanic Studies, New Academic (Re)visions, to be held on April 22, 2016.

The conference will focus primarily on the exploration of innovative approaches to the study of Hispanic literature and linguistics, with the objective of recovering contributions and other aspects of these disciplines that have traditionally been underrepresented or overlooked and establish new interdisciplinary dialogues.

Boundaries and Intersections: Space, Time, Discipline – Proposals by 12/18/15; Conference 2/25/16-2/27/16

Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.
