Crossing the Boundaries: Culture, Linguistics, and Literature, 4/14/07

April 14, 2007IASEvents, | Conferences0

This one day event will address the question about the state of the disciplines of Hispanic Studies today and the new challenges that Linguistics and Literature are facing, in particular with regards to the crossing of disciplinary borders such as in Cultural Studies and in the integration of Linguistics and Literature. Invited Panelists: David Castillo, SUNY Buffalo; David William Foster, Arizona State University; Jose Ignacio Hualde, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; John Lipski, Pennsylvania State University. Each panelist will give a brief presentation and will actively participate in the ensuing discussion, among themselves, and with the public.

Morning session: Linguistics vis a vis Literature and Culture;
Afternoon Session: The challenges of Cultural Studies.

Some of the issues to be discussed include:
• An understanding of the (dis)integration of linguistics and
literature/cultural studies
• An examination of the effect that cultural studies have been having in the
field of literature
• An investigation of the rethinking of why a cross disciplinary approach
has not included linguistics as an important part of the interdisciplinary
• An exploration of the assumptions and/or notions about/of linguistics that
are circulating within the domain of literary/cultural studies

Cosponsored by The Department of Spanish and Portuguese, The CLA Administration, The Department of Chicano Studies, The Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies, and The Institute of Linguistics, ESL, and Slavic Languages and Literatures.
