    We are proposing three sessions for the 2017 session in Philadelphia. In order to allow plenty of time for interaction, we will limit each session to three presentations. While you do have to be a member of MLA to present, you do not have to be a member of the Forum (although we’d love to have you!)

    1. Guaranteed session

    “Questioning the Global Hispanophone”:
    The Global Hispanophone offers both the potential for an expanded, destabilized Hispanism, and the limitations of being a pseudo-imperial category. Can a postnational, postimperial approach avoid this imperialist framework without undermining the specificities of this corpus?

    Send Abstracts (250 words) to Joyce Tolliver ( by March 15.

    We will also propose the following two sessions:

    1. “Hispanophone-East Asian Connections”

    For this session, we are soliciting analyses of texts about or from Hispanophone populations in East Asia,  from any period.

    Send Abstracts (250 words) to Joyce Tolliver ( by March 15.

    1. From “Moroccan Mellahs to Filipino Sinagogas: Sephardic Diaspora” (in collaboration with the Sephardic Studies Forum):

    Studies of Sephardic communities in African or Asian Spanish colonies. How does Sephardic cultural production problematize imperial and postimperial notions of Hispanidad?

    Abstracts to Adolfo Campoy-Cubillo ( by 15 March 2016
