Meeting Description:

ucLADINO is a student-run organization at the University of California, Los Angeles dedicated to promoting the knowledge and use of the Judeo-Spanish language(s).

Now in its 5th consecutive year, the ucLADINO Judeo-Spanish Symposium is the nation’s premiere space for students, scholars, and community stakeholders to connect and share original research on linguistic, literary, cultural, and historical facets of Judeo-Spanish.

For more information visit our website (, or contact ucLADINO Co-Directors, Payton Phillips Quintanilla and Cheri Robinson (

Call for Papers:

This year we will explore the ways in which Judeo-Spanish creates and/or functions within and across diverse physical, socio-cultural, and linguistic geographies. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

- Diversity and transformation in linguistic contact zones
- Trans-historical and intergenerational relationships
- Judeo-Spanish in domestic and public spaces
- Political, economic, and cultural networks and activism
- Underrepresented communities in the Sephardic Diaspora
- Judeo-Spanish in interdisciplinary studies
- Crossing borders in literature, music, and performance
- University-Community relations and collaborations

Please feel free to examine topics pertaining to any time period, region, or academic discipline. Submissions by students (graduate or advanced undergraduate) and junior faculty are highly encouraged. Abstracts must be 200 words maximum, excluding selected references.

Note: Because our symposium is attended by a large number of community members in addition to students and scholars, panel participants are expected to present in an accessible fashion. Strictly reading papers is discouraged, and the inclusion of multimedia (audio, visuals, etc.) is strongly encouraged.
