Conference Announcement

Join Us for the Upcoming "Language, Image, Power: Luso-Hispanic Cultural Studies Theory and Practice" Conference at Texas Tech University - October 10-12, 2019

Professor Larson and a group of colleagues and graduate students in the Spanish and Portuguese program have worked to bring together a group of approximately 100 teachers, scholars, activists and students interested in taking up the history, evolution and future of Luso-Hispanic Cultural Studies as a discipline, a pedagogical tool and a set of working practices from October 10-12, 2019. Texas Tech is honored to be able to provide a space for all involved to share ideas about how Luso-Hispanic Cultural Studies has grown out of and radically reconsidered some of the basic principles of the field since the 1960s to address the many cultures of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking world.
