CFP Transnational Perspectives on Spanish in Society (UK)

ConferencesCall for Papers: Transnational Perspectives on the Study of Spanish in Society, The University of Edinburgh, 5-6 September 2019. Deadline: April 15, 2019.

Transnational Perspectives on the Study of Spanish in Society marks the the 9th International Conference of Hispanic Linguistics and 7th Biennial Meeting of the International Association for the Study of Spanish in Society. Languages travel and adapt to the new circumstances faced by their speakers. The growth of the Spanish language has always been transnational in nature, insofar as any expansion has been grounded in cultural and economic exchange. Therefore, at this conference, organizers wish to bring together those with scholarly interests in the situation of the Spanish language in the contemporary world. Almost twenty years into the new millennium, it is time reflect on how Spanish speakers, be they in their countries of origin or in the diaspora, construct and negotiate concepts of community. How is this achieved by recourse to ideas of borders, migration and contact? How do speakers move beyond notions of physical space, and push social, political, cultural and commercial boundaries, in order to break through the limits imposed on them by nations and continents?

Abstracts may be submitted in English or in Spanish.
