deadline for submissions:

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:

In her essay “Posthumanist Performativity” Karen Barad writes that she wants to understand “how matter comes to matter.” . New materialist scholars like Barad use “matter” as an anchor, closing in on the physical and metaphysical “matter” of politics, economy, ecology, technology, nature, and art. These scholars are shifting away from a framework of human representation to a framework of phenomena; eliding the anthropological and instead focusing on how they themselves are a part of an interconnected whole. From a literary perspective that “matter” is broadly defined and nebulous in its construction.
