Meeting Description:

The fifth Graduate Portuguese & Hispanic Symposium (GRAPHSY) will be held March 16-17, 2012, at Georgetown University.

Even in an ever-increasingly globalized world, there remain barriers and boundaries to effective communication. These interferences can be physical, cultural, or linguistic in nature, creating distorted, dissonant and disruptive spheres of communication. This conference seeks to explore the (im)possibilities of transmission in linguistics, literature, and cultural studies.
