On behalf of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Georgetown University, we invite you to participate in the 10th annual Graduate Portuguese and Hispanic Symposium (GRAPHSY). We welcome proposals within the theme Movements and Waves that represents research in the fields of Linguistics or Iberian and Latin American Literature/Culture. To celebrate our decennial symposium, the theme will pay tribute to current movements within these fields. Many of these movements build off the energy of earlier scholars, while others break free from earlier traditions and disturb the status quo. Whatever the case, these new movements are integrated into the fields, resulting in ripples and repercussions that, for years, continue to impact the approaches scholars take to pursue research in these areas. GRAPHSY 2017 recognizes this transmission of energy as a critical component of the diffusion of knowledge within these spheres, and hopes to provide a forum for the communion of these revolutionary and innovative ideas.
