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:

Gothic, Ghastly, Corporeal and Creaturely: Tim Burton's Curious Bodies
Thursday 15th February 2018 at Light House Media Centre*, Wolverhampton
Keynote: Professor Adam Barkman, Redeemer University College, Ontario
What role could philosophy play to the challenges posed by climate change, resource depletion and the diverse political and cultural crises our societies face in the 21st Century? How to identify the toxic effects of the logic of advance capitalism and neoliberal globalization in a cognitive, social and structural level? What kind of narratives, cartographies and figurations account for the fractures and contradictions of our times? How to reinvent subjectivity when trying to make it compatible with mutating universes of value? How can art, cultural becomings and institutional practice be thought in terms of environmental sustainability in the postnatural and posthuman, technologically-mediated era of the Anthropocene?

It creates a space for serious scholarship in fields that are only beginning to be considered in the academic world (such as science fiction, fantasy, horror, gothic, folklore, children’s literature, etc.) in a way that both academics and enthusiasts will appreciate.
