    MLA 2019 Session: Textual Transactions in the Global Hispanophone

    As the nexus of seemingly highly disparate groups, Global Hispanophone studies explore the paradox of a separation that unifies. This paradox is reflected in texts that navigate separations such as those between countries, languages, generations, interior frontiers, and colonial pasts, thus functioning as loci for transactions that offer the possibility of transformation. Participants might analyze textual transactions (intersections, executions, receptions, performances) that arise from or represent separations due, for example, to violence or to political, economic, cultural, or other factors. Send a one-page abstract by March 15 to Joyce L. Tolliver at joycet@illinois.edu, and to Benita.sampedro@hofstra.edu.
