Meeting Description:

The fourth Graduate Portuguese & Hispanic Symposium (GRAPHSY) will be held March 25th-26th 2011, at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. This year's conference will explore the cultural intersections among languages, nationalities, and identities. Literature and Languages created at the borders, between hegemonic and subaltern spaces, between native and foreign cultures will be approached from different perspectives.

GRAPHSY 2011 Keynote Speakers:

Dr. Liliana Sánchez, Associate Professor at Rutgers University. Her research interests are bilingual syntax, comparative syntax and bilingual education. In bilingual syntax, her current work focuses on interference and convergence at the syntax/pragmatics interface (Spanish-English, Spanish-Quechua). In comparative syntax, she works on the interface between informational structure and morphosyntax (Spanish, Quechua). In the area of bilingual education, she works on language policy, curriculum development and assessment in bilingual education programs.

Dr. Galen Brokaw, Associate Professor of Spanish at SUNY, Buffalo, holds a Ph.D. from Indiana University. His primary area of specialization is colonial Latin America with emphases in historiography, indigenous writing, and Nahuatl language and culture. He is also interested in Andean studies and indigenismo and neo-indigenismo in the 19th and 20th centuries. A History of the Khipu, a book part of the Cambridge Latin American Studies series, was published at the beginning of 2010.

Call for Papers:

We invite the submission of abstracts about the following fields: (i) linguistics, (ii) literature and (iii) cultural studies. Topics may include, but are not limited to:


Language Description / Bilingualism (sociolinguistic and cognitive perspectives) / Spanglish / Sociolinguistics (language policies, education, language rights, language vitality-revitalization)/ Acquisition of indigenous languages / Languages in contact / Creolization / Theoretical analysis of Spanish, Portuguese or indigenous languages (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics)
