Conference Theme: “Crossroads of Cultures”

Through the art, architecture and design of the city, it is evident that there were, and are, different cultures crossing paths and influencing each other, now and over the past several centuries. San Antonio is a cultural kaleidoscope that began with the native indigenous peoples who made their home here. The arrival of the Spanish people and, later, the Anglos, resulted in a new culture that permeates almost every place in the United States: the Hispanic American culture.  Literature, Linguistics, Cultural Studies and other forms of art bear witness to this mixing and coexisting of many different cultures. We anticipate a wide range of exciting research connected to this topic to be presented at these meeting. As always, papers on other topics are also welcome.

The submission deadline is 31 March 2018.
