Asturias y l@s asturian@s en la historia: pasado, presente y futuro
Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture (CSRPC) at the University of Chicago, the Academia de la Llingua Asturiana and the Franke Institute for the Humanities.
The Spanish Graduate Students Committee of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Chicago welcomes abstracts for its forthcoming monographic conference that will take place on Sunday, October 18, 2009. The conference focuses on the outstanding roles of the Asturian people throughout Spanish history from the Middle Ages to the 21st century and their contribution to arts and sciences. Its aim is also to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Asturian miners’ revolution in 1934. It will cover a wide variety of topics including transatlantic studies and modern theoretical perspectives.
Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes in length (10 pages MLA format). Interested scholars, faculty and graduate students may submit a one-page abstract (250-300 words) to be considered anonymously, together with a cover letter including name, academic affiliation, title of the presentation, and email address. Abstracts may be submitted individually or as a panel. They could tentatively deal with any of the following topics:
• The linguistic aspects of the Asturian language.
• Carreño Miranda, painter of Philip IV and Charles II.
This list is meant to be suggestive rather than exhaustive; we welcome papers and panel proposals on other topics related to the conference from all theoretical perspectives. Interdisciplinary approaches are also encouraged. Both panels and abstracts can be submitted in Spanish or English and should be sent directly to email@example.com no later than
JULY 15, 2009
