Dear Colleagues,

I wanted to inform you that the panel “Collapse and Catastrophe: Spain’s Cultural Panorama in the XXI Century” at the ACLA 2012 in Providence, RI has been cancelled to due lack of abstracts.

The offer for an edited volume from Cambridge Scholars Publishing Volume for this CFP stands.

I am asking that if you would like to your article to be considered it is necessary that the completed essay (no more than 25 pages), in Author-Date Style, be sent to amedin40@mscd.edu no later than March 26th, 2012.

Again, if you know if someone who might like to be considered for this volume please do not hesitate in forwarding the CFP.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me at amedin40@mscd.edu.
Thank you again for your time.

Collapse and Catastrophe: Spain’s Cultural Panorama in the XXI Century
In the last ten years Spain has experienced pivotal changes that have occurred through collapses, catastrophes and re-vindications in the political, social and environmental realms.
This panel seeks to explore various questions, amongst them:
- How have the arts responded to these events?
- How does transatlantic literature react to the events both in Spain and the country of origin?
- How have the Spanish regionalisms acknowledged and re-conceptualized their identity as a result of these events?
- How has immigration been incorporated into Spanish subjectivity?
- How have gender issues, human rights and human trafficking in Spain been incorporated into the cultural landscape?
