Dear colleagues:

The Mid-America Conference on Hispanic Literatures will take place October 26-28, 2017 in St. Louis, MO, hosted by the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Washington University in St. Louis. (Proposal deadline: March 31, 2017).

The organizing committee seeks proposals for individual presentations and special sessions on any aspect of the literatures and cultures of the Iberian Peninsula or Latin America, written in Spanish, English or Portuguese. Panels or individual proposals related to the conference theme, New Cartographies in Iberian and Latin American Studies are especially encouraged.

We welcome alternatives to the traditional format of three to four papers: roundtables, workshops, lightning talks, workshops, pecha kucha, etc. Please note that we discourage panels from groups of scholars coming from the same institution. 

This year’s keynote speakers are Bruno Bosteels (Columbia University) and Susan Martin-Márquez (Rutgers University). The Revista de Estudios Hispánicos will sponsor a plenary session on “Publishing in an Age of Crisis.”

Send panel proposals and 250-word abstracts for individual papers by March 31, 2017 to:

The annual Mid-America Conference on Hispanic Literatures is a joint undertaking of the universities of Colorado (Boulder), Kansas (Lawrence), Missouri (Columbia), Nebraska (Lincoln), Wisconsin (Madison and Milwaukee), and Washington University (St. Louis).
