The 16thAnnual Hispanic & Lusophone Studies Symposium at Ohio State April 5–6, 2013

This year’s graduate student organized symposium will resemble the form of an international seminar, in that all presenters will form part of a collective effort to move toward a response of two central problematics involving the Hispanic and Lusophone worlds: Memory/history and universality, local knowledge and global power. The symposium will be divided along these two lines of thought, where we will encourage [End Page 234] students of Latin American, Indigenous, Iberian, Colonial Transatlantic, Cultural, Popular Music, Gender and Sexuality, Queer, Film, Caribbean, and Latino Studies to enter into a transdisciplinary and transatlantic dialogue. Within each theme, panels will be formed from the thematic similarities.
