Meeting Description:

Given the strategic proximity of the state of Florida to many Latin American countries and the complex demographic reconfiguration the state has undergone through several migratory flows, our colloquium intends to engage participants in critical thinking and discussion of different cultural and linguistic productions regarding the confluence of several processes such as immigration, memory recovery, unemployment, and language maintenance.

Title of the Colloquium:

Back to the Past? Memory, Displacement, and Identity from the Perspective of Violence and its Relation to Discourse.

We hope to host 4 keynote speakers, whose expertise will be invaluable to the attendees of the colloquium. Two of them are UF researchers, Dr. Andrés Avellaneda and Dr. M.J. Hardman; other two off-campus guest speakers have already been secured: Dr. Octavio Escobar Giraldo, a Colombian writer and Dr. Andrew Lynch from the Linguistics Department at the University of Miami.

We encourage you to submit abstracts to coloquioufyahoo.com
Contact us if any inquiry.
