CFP: Revising the Hispanic Canon. Visibility and Cultural Capital at the Margins

CFP: Revising the Hispanic Canon. Visibility and Cultural Capital at the Margins

Deadline: 13 May 2015

In recent years, meta-critical studies such as Ideologies of Hispanism (2005), Spain Beyond Spain (2005), Reading Iberia (2007), Un hispanismo para el siglo XXI (2011) and Iberian Modalities (2013) have sought to uncover the ideological discourses underlying Hispanic Studies and trace its historical evolution in order to elucidate how the discipline might or ought to evolve, if it is to remain relevant in a context in which national, linguistic and disciplinary boundaries have become problematized. The present volume, co-edited by Stuart Davis and Maite Usoz de la Fuente, seeks to contribute to this ongoing debate by considering how the work of PhD students and early career researchers in Hispanic Studies reflects and contributes to the expansion and the blurring of disciplinary limits.
In a broad sense, the duty of every new generation of scholars in any arts and humanities discipline is to encourage a revision of the canon within that discipline and, in the process, to contribute to a redefinition of the discipline itself. This is an exciting enterprise, but it is not without its challenges and pitfalls. Amongst them is the question of how to attain visibility when working on a topic that is little known, or considered a niche area within one’s discipline, or how to position one’s work if undertaking inter- or multidisciplinary research that surpasses disciplinary boundaries. The aim of this book is to offer a useful overview of new research in Hispanic Studies by a selection of emerging scholars, and to reflect upon questions of canonicity, visibility and cultural capital, and the ways in which such notions span and contribute to shape our field of study.
Contributions to this volume are welcome from doctoral students and early career researchers (understood as those who have obtained their doctoral degree within the past seven years) whose work focuses on (but may not be limited to) the following areas:

  • Hispanism beyond Spain and Latin America: North Africa, the Philippines, and Guinea
  • Interdisciplinary crossroads: comparative and multidisciplinary approaches to Hispanic texts
  • The role of visual and popular culture within Hispanic Studies
  • Other languages and cultures (non-Castilian languages and cultures of Spain and Latin America)
  • Going against the grain: Paradigm-shifting revisions of the canon
  • New methodological approaches to canonical texts

If you want to contribute to this volume, please send an abstract of no more than 300 words to hispanic.canon@gmail.com by 13 May 2015, accompanied by a short biography including your name, institutional affiliation and areas of research (2-3 lines). Selected contributors will be contacted by 30 May 2015 and the deadline for submission of essays will be 31 December 2015.

CFP: Early Modern Hybridity and Globalization: Artistic and Architectural Exchange in the Iberian World

2014-05-RSA-Berlin-2015CFP: Early Modern Hybridity and Globalization: Artistic and Architectural Exchange in the Iberian World,  Renaissance Society of America conference, Berlin 2015
Scholarship has accepted “hybridity” as a term referring to cultural cross-fertilization in the early modern globalized society. This panel will examine ideas of exchange in artistic and architectural design in the Iberian world of the period. We will explore Spain and Portugal and their wider imperial dominions as points for cultural exchange. We welcome proposals that explore the impact of cultural encounters on art and architecture. We seek papers that examine Iberian encounters in Europe, including the Peninsula itself, as well as those in the wider world, from the South-East Asia to the Americas. We are particularly interested in research that deals with the way in which communities  – artists, patrons, collectors and audiences – negotiated global/transoceanic trends and symbols of local identity in the production of art and architecture. Papers will explore artistic and architectural design that embodies hybridity, rather than for example collections of exotica.
Please send your proposals, an abstract of no more than 150 words, and a short CV, no longer than one side of an A4 sheet of paper, to the co-chairs, Laura Fernández-González, University of Edinburgh (laura.fernandez-gonzalez@ed.ac.uk / laura.fernandezgonzalez@gmail.com), and Marjorie Trusted, Victoria & Albert Museum (m.trusted@vam.ac.uk) before 2 June 2014.
