Horror Vacui: 5th Annual Graduate Conference of the Department of Spanish & Portuguese - University of Minnesota

updated:

Department of Spanish & Portuguese - University of Minnesota

Thursday, February 1, 2018

The graduate students from the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our annual conference, titled ''Horror vacui: V Annual Graduate Student Conference''. The conference will take place on March 30-31, 2018 in Minneapolis. Through the Latin expression horror vacui we intend to synthesize a comprehensive Western tradition of the creation of and approach to different kinds of emptiness, be they linguistics, political, cultural, or artistic voids, whose mere existence generates anguish and, thereby, legitimizes the strategies of their occupation and suppression.

We are proud to announce the participation of the plenary speakers:

From Starbucks’ retail-branding as a “third place” between home and work to Benedict Anderson’s Imagined Communities, the places of our lives are simultaneously locations and conceptions. To be in a place is to do the representational work of defining that space’s affective and pragmatic borders.

As seen in Charleston, South Carolina and more recently in Charlottesville, Virginia, monuments that celebrate slave-owning heritage such as confederate flags and memorials honoring anti-abolitionists have become contentious subjects, leading to outrage and violence. For some, these controversial symbols represent racial oppression; for others, their heritage, turning historic landscapes into a stage for the ongoing conversation about race and inequality in America.  Unlike France, the United States has yet to officially acknowledge slavery as a crime against humanity or to erect slave memorials that pay homage to the victims.
