The Center for Latino and Latin American Studies at Northern Illinois University invites you to submit proposals for its fifth annual interdisciplinary conference, Treinta y tres, to be held on Friday, November 17, 2023. This year’s theme is “Celebrating and Contesting Afro-Latinidad.” We are interested in individual and panel proposals that examine historical or contemporary representations of Afro-Latinidad. Proposals might also explore the role of race, racism, and blackness in shaping (Afro-)Latin American and (Afro-)Latinx history, culture, and experiences.

We welcome proposals from faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students that engage approaches and methodologies from across the arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences. The deadline to submit proposals (150-300 words) for papers, panels, performances, or workshops is September 15, 2023. Proposals should include a title, brief abstract, and contact information for each participant. Please also indicate if you prefer a virtual or in-person session. We will do our best to accommodate preferences, but flexibility on modality will be appreciated.
