March 21-24, 2013
Boston, Massachusetts
Host Institution: Tufts University

Session Description and Submission Information
Esta mesa redonda se centrará en el estudio de las representaciones literarias de ideologías que "contrastan" con el catolicismo en la España del siglo XIX y principios del XX. Se propone un debate que analice un amplio espectro de posibilidades alejadas de la religiosidad al uso. Las presentaciones abordaran el estudio de discursos que plasmen posturas como el laicismo, el librepensamiento, el anticlericalismo, el ateísmo, la masonería o el espiritismo.
Resulta crucial para el éxito de esta mesa redonda que se incluya una perspectiva de género revisando propuestas alternativas o transgresoras de la espiritualidad por parte de la mujer en este período.

3. 12th Ohio Latin Americanist Conference at Wittenberg University

Friday – Saturday, February 22-23, 2013
Wittenberg University
Springfield, Ohio

The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, International Studies, Women’s Studies and African and Diaspora Studies Programs at Wittenberg University are pleased to host the 12th Ohio Latin Americanist Conference for the year 2013. We invite all Latin Americanist and Latina/o Studies scholars, educators, and students from institutions of higher education in Ohio and surrounding areas to participate in this annual meeting on the state of Latin American and Latina/o Studies.

Research areas may include (but are not limited to) literatures & linguistics, history, education, geography, political science, economics, anthropology, sociology, art, area studies such as cultural, international, women’s, gender, ethnic, and sexuality studies.
We especially invite proposals related to the natural sciences, environmental sciences, bioethics, and other fields that have been underrepresented in past OLAC meetings.

During this year’s conference, we would like to emphasize an interdisciplinary dialogue that addresses the cultural and political agency of civil grassroots movements across the Americas. The interconnection between social movements and the reestablishment of participatory democracies has become a key issue during recent years in both the U.S. and Latin America. We would like to pay special attention to this emerging phenomenon by fostering workshops and/or panels on any aspect of the Performance of Politics in the Public Sphere. Likewise OLAC would like to promote a public arena where we can reinvigorate the historical role played by the academy as a democratic actor in contemporary public debate.

All papers and panels are welcome but we will give special consideration to proposals/panels promoting discussion in the following areas:

· Ethics and Aesthetics: New Politics for Citizenship and Human Rights in Latin America.
· Sustainability, Culture and Environmental Issues: New Initiatives in the Americas.
· Cuba in the 21st Century.
· Any aspect of the African Diaspora in Latin America and the Caribbean, since the month of February is dedicated to Afro-American history.
· Paulo Freire’s Pedagogical and Cultural Legacy in the Era of the Wall-Street-ization of Latin America.
· Women’s Agency in the Public Sphere
· Ethnicity, Nationalism, and the State.

• Keynote speaker: Professor Mercedes Prieto Noguera, Anthropologist and Coordinator of FLACSO Ecuador’s Humanities program, will speak on her work with Quichua and Amazonean indigenous women of Ecuador.
• Special invited guests: Professor Luisa Yara Campos, Professor of Pedagogy and Director of Cuba’s Museum on the Literary Campaign of 1961. Kaori Flores Yonekura, rising Venezuelan documentary film-maker.
• Film screenings: Kaori Flores Yonekura will present her film, Nikkei, a personal exploration of Japanese immigration to Peru and Venezuela. Flores Yonekura will also bring for screening other recent Venezuelan films. Luisa Yara Campos will present the documentary film, Maestra, on the impact of the Literacy Campaign on women participants’ lives, using archival materials from the museum.
• Optional Wines of Latin America wine-tasting reception at the Wescott House, a unique example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie Style architecture in Springfield, Ohio.

Please send a 300 word abstract for individual papers or for a panel to, by October 15th, 2012
