Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA will host the XXX Biennial Louisiana Conference on Hispanic Languages and Literatures from October 31 - November 2, 2019. Our conference theme is 'Decolonization and Diasporas of the Global South'.

We welcome submissions related to topics concerning the Global South as it appears in literary or cultural documents and through different media: manuscripts, books, films, internet, radio, TV, etc. We conceive of the conference as a place to reflect on the art forms, cultural practices, political and social movements, and linguistic effects which have emerged in the Global South over the past six centuries.
