This panel will explore the many forms of adaptation in Hispanic cultures, offering a comparative dialogue on the multiform products and processes of adaptation within Spain and Spanish America. We encourage contributors to employ interdisciplinary tools and theoretical perspectives that open new conversations on the porousness of cultural edges and the artifacts that sustain and deny them. We welcome paper proposals on topics including studies of texts, genres, contact zones, and analyses of adaptation itself, among others.

 

By June 26, please send a 250-word paper abstract, a 1-page CV and A/V requests to co-chairs Elisabeth Austin (elaustin@vt.edu) and Elena Lahr-Vivaz (elahrvivaz431@gmail.com).
