Betwixt and Between: Questions of the Liminal

How does the liminal manifest in the Spanish-speaking world?

To what does it respond in various contexts, spaces, and artistic expressions? From colonial wounds, through border disputes, gender expression, and artistic hybridization, the history of the Spanish-language sphere is one of diverse networks of communication. The idea of the liminal allows for the revision, evaluation, and deconstruction of these bordered spaces, to elaborate a site of dialogue and encounter.

Keynote Speakers:
Benita Sampedro Vizcaya – Hofstra University
Mariana De Paula Ferreira – Artist and Cultural Manager

Co-sponsored by the Program in Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies and the Program in Women, Gender, and Sexuality.

Location: Gilman Hall
