It has been decades since linguistics began to transcend beyond the study of structure. Linguistics has departed from the confines of phonetics and phonology (the study of linguistic sounds), morphology (the study of word formation), syntax (the study of the structure of phrases, clauses, and sentences), and semantics (the study of meanings). Countless studies have been undertaken involving linguistics and other related disciplines.

This CFP is aimed at those researchers who are researching in popular culture in Spain through photography, cinema, television, radio, music or video games. The format of the seminar will be hybrid, being able to present a communication (10 minutes) in person or online, in Spanish or in English.

No matter how many years have passed since the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood, this era never seems to leave the popular imagination. James Dean and Judy Garland remain household names; modern celebrities still seek to emulate the glamour of this bygone time; and audiences still go to see contemporary biopics and television shows about stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, and Bette Davis. There is something about this moment in American moviemaking that grabbed the public’s attention and has never let go, even as the larger cinematic landscape continues to change dramatically.
