Out of Africa: Spanish Language & Identity in Post-Colonial Africa & Beyond

One-day symposium, supported by the MHRA, the Centre for Advanced Studies in Languages and Cultures and the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies

This one-day symposium will bring together, for the first time in Ireland, a cross-disciplinary gathering whose focus will be the long-neglected area of Afro-Hispanic language and identity. Incorporating themes such as migration, displacement, postcolonialism and sociolinguistics, this symposium aims both to increase awareness of a research area which is worthy of much more extensive and deeper study, and to facilitate a discussion of key topics that are becoming ever more relevant in the twenty-first century: migratory flows, diasporic identity and the role of language in facilitating integration. This symposium will provide a unique opportunity for scholars and thinkers from a variety of new and exciting research areas to meet and exchange views, and thus contribute significantly to the growth of knowledge in this area.
