From the conference organizers:

The study of the historical links between USA and Spain is of vital importance for the Social Sciences and the Humanities. Furthermore, the present and future of these two countries is marked and determined by unbreakable cultural and economic ties. The current globalizing trends cannot be understood or analyzed outside of the framework of these connections.The City College of New York Division of Interdisciplinary Studies and the Instituto Franklin of the Universidad de Alcalá seek papers from a broad range of disciplines and areas of study with a special emphasis in interdisciplinary approaches to the historical links between USA and Spain.

The main goal of the conference is to provide a place for academicians and professionals with cross-disciplinary interests related to these topics, to meet and interact with members inside and outside their own particular disciplines in the areas of Humanities and Social Sciences.

  1. Colonial & Post Colonial Studies. Coordinator: Juan Carlos Mercado.
