CUNY: The 25th Conference on Spanish in the United States/ 10th Conference on Spanish in Contact with Other Languages
March 26, 2015 - March 27, 2015
March 26-29, 2015
From the organizers:
Founded in 1980, the Spanish in the US Conference brings together researchers from various disciplines – such as linguistics, sociology, anthropology, education, and legal studies – investigating a wide range of topics related to Spanish and Spanish-speaking communities in the United States. Since 1991, it has been held in conjunction with the Spanish in Contact with Other Languages Conference. The conference has been held in New York only once before, at Hunter College in 1983. Its presence at CCNY this year highlights The City College’s commitment to and recognition of linguistic and ethnic diversity, as well as the importance of Spanish as the language of the most represented ethnic group in New York City and in the United States.
This four-day conference will feature 121 presentations on panels with scholars from the United States and abroad. There will be four keynote addresses (one each day): Dr. Ricardo Otheguy (The Graduate Center – CUNY), Dr. Carol Klee (University of Minnesota), Dr. Kim Potowski (University of Illinois at Chicago), and Dr. J. César Félix-Brasdefer (Indiana University Bloomington).
The two conference organizers are Dr. Edwin M. Lamboy, Associate Professor of Secondary Spanish Education and Spanish and Chair of the Secondary Education Department, and Dr. Laura Callahan, Professor of Hispanic Linguistics in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. Sponsors include President Lisa S. Coico, the School of Education, the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, the Division of Humanities & the Arts, the Simon H. Rifkind Center for the Humanities & the Arts, the Center for Worker Education, the Ph.D. Program in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages at The Graduate Center – CUNY, and the Cervantes Institute.
