I3MS in "El filólogo en la red"

I3MS would like to thank Jaime Galbarro García for including us among the recommended links in his blog "El filólogo en la red". We hope this will be the beginning of a productive and enriching relationship and exchange with other on-line projects of interest for Medievalists working on Iberian and Italian topics.

Call for papers: LAST CALL to the WISPS XII Conference!

The I3MS has received an urgent annoucement from the organisers of the XII Conference of the WISPS:

Women in Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies (WISPS) is a group of colleagues concerned with feminist studies and with the role of women in British and Irish Luso-Hispanism. The annual conference is one of the main events in the WISPS calendar. This year the conference will be held at the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, University of London on 10th and 11th November 2011, in addition there will be a WISPS workshop on November 12th.

The conference is open to all those working in university departments in Great Britain and Ireland and/or researching into fields such as feminist theory, history, cultural memory, linguistics, literature, cultural and textual theory, audio and film studies, performance studies, politics, anthropology, geography, queer theory, and theatre studies, within Luso-Hispanic culture. Proposals (200 words) are invited for individual papers of 20 minutes or for panels, consisting of three papers of 20 minutes on any area of research relating to Spanish, Latin American or Lusophone studies. Proposals should be sent by the 1st September 2011, including name of speaker, title of paper and full contact details to the conference organizers.

Some of the themes we will address in this year’s conference are: Performance, interpretation and translation. We would particularly welcome proposals for papers and panels that engage the conference’s keynote topics and events: Poetry and performance, Teaching and learning, Theatre and translation. Papers on topics not covered by these themes are also welcome
