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:

The entirety of the world's collected facts, seemingly left unadulterated only for us to interpret and justify, never feels more than a few taps away.
