Mobilities and Moorings
February 27 - March 1, 2014
Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA
Since the 1990s a ‘new mobilities paradigm’ has crossed disciplinary boundaries to examine the broader social and political implications of movement, ranging from the scale of the body to the global. Human geographer Tim Cresswell points out three aspects that allow for a holistic understanding of mobility: ‘the fact of physical movement - getting from one place to another; the representations of movement that give it shared meaning; and finally, the experienced and embodied practice of movement’. The upcoming edition of the Louisiana Conference on Hispanic Languages and Literatures aims to explore the varied cultural and linguistic manifestations and interpretations of mobility that emerge in the Spanish-speaking world throughout history. We extend the call for essays that examine how movement or mobility is represented in art, literature, film, and performance; as well as how actual movement is involved in the creation, circulation, and reception of works. The field of linguistics is particularly tied to forms of mobility and presentations might explore issues of variation in time and/or space, sociolinguistic aspects of mobility, the language of written records, bilingualism, language maintenance, issues related to proficiency/nativity/hybridity, and language attitudes.
