  1. Querida Ellen y queridos colegas de la AHH:

    Les invito a participar de un proyecto que estamos desarrollando con mi colega, la Dra. Jeanie Murphy de Goucher College. Se trata de una colección de artículos titulada “Written in the Water: the Image of the River in Latino/American Literature”. Les copio a continuación el Call for Papers. Espero que muchos de ustedes tengan interés en participar. Nos vemos en la próxima conferencia de la AHH.

    CALL FOR PAPERS
    Written in the Water: The Image of the River in Latin/o American Literature

    The image of the river in Latin/o American literature has been multiple and varied. The slow, meandering streams of nostalgia, the raging currents of conflict or the stagnant waters of social decay are just a few of the ways in which the river has become a potent symbol and inspiration to many of the region’s writers.

    We are seeking papers that explore the use of the river imagery in Latin/o American literature from the colonial period to contemporary works and we invite scholars to submit papers that will enrich this examination of the literary experience of the river. We wish to create a space in which to explore the literal and metaphoric meanings of the river in Latin/o American literature, meanings associated as much with processes of a personal nature (narratives of growth, the search for identity, etc.) as with those of the collective experience and significant periods of transformation in the region (colonialism and the formation of nation-states, modernization, dictatorship and violence, environmental degradation, globalization, immigration, multiculturalism, etc.).

    Although there are individual scholarly works that discuss these themes, this project seeks to offer a more inclusive collection that, spanning different time periods and geographic zones, will allow us, from the vantage point of the twenty-first century, to reflect on the rich and dynamic image of the river (including as well similar bodies of water like creeks and streams) and, by extension, on the vital context of Latin/o America, its people and societies.

    Scholarly articles should be written in English and be no longer than 10,000 words, including footnotes and bibliography. The deadline for submission of works is April 30, 2015. You may send you submissions as well as any questions to Jeanie Murphy (Goucher College) jeanie.murphy@goucher.edu or Elizabeth Rivero (U.S Coast Guard Academy) Elizabeth.G.Rivero@gmail.com

  2. Estimados colegas:

    El Departamento de Hispánicas está organizando un congreso interdisciplinar ‘Pulling Together or Pulling Apart: Identidad y Nación — España, Europa, Occidente’ a finales de junio, y les agradeceríamos si pudiesen difundir la convocatoria que adjuntamos por archivo entre los miembros de la asociación y en su página web.

    Se puede acceder a la información preliminar del congreso a través del enlace https://www.tcd.ie/Hispanic_Studies/ptpa-conference/index.php

    Muchísimas gracias por su atención y saludos muy cordiales,
