14 TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY S FOURTH HISPANIC STUDIES ANNUAL GRADUATE CONFERENCE Call for Papers Conference Title: Translating Social Movements Friday March 21 Saturday March The relationship between intellectual discourse and grassroots social movements has long been a contentious and conflictive one, but it is also one that has been shaped by mutual interaction. Just as the production of knowledge has formed and informed the direction of social movements, so have social movements themselves shaped the direction of intellectual activity throughout the years. In our global times, we are witnessing the explosion of social movements that operate outwith the traditional modes of representational politics that has defined western modernity. So-called global justice movements such as Occupy, the Spanish indignados and Non-Governmental Organizations, local movements of a political nature such as the Zapatistas and MST, or trans-national ones such as the Arab Spring, global networks of commercial insurgency and crime, such as represent the War on Terror and the War on Drugs, even the expansion of religious and cultural fundamentalisms. As a border zone where, in the words of Gloria Anzaldúa, the third world grates against the first and bleeds, Texas is intersected by many such types of movements, by what Toni Negri calls the movement of movements. The 4 th Hispanic Studies Graduate Conference seeks to take an interdisciplinary approach to the conditions which concern the translatability of such movements, movements which often exceed and challenge the apparatuses which try to understand, control or intervene in them. Such approaches may include, but are not limited to, any of the following intersections: Cultural treatments of social movements past or present, whether in the plastic arts, literature, film or music Linguistic approaches which may include, but are not limited to, translating the needs of particular social groups The relationship between academic knowledge and social movements, in fields such as philosophy, sociology, anthropology or political sciences The role of history and the complexity of historicizing social movements Perspectives from ethnic and racial, queer, gender and/or indigenous studies. Keynote Speakers: Glenn Martínez (linguist, Ohio State University) and Cristina Rivera Garza (writer, University of California San Diego). SUBMISSIONS: Participants may submit either panel proposals or individual paper submissions. Panel proposals should include the proposed name of the panel, the organizer, and individual paper abstracts for each presenter. Abstracts for individual papers should be of no more than 250 words and include the participant s affiliation. Please send your proposals for panels or individual papers by February 28 th 2014 to María Gil Poisa, at
15 CUARTA CONFERENCIA DE ESTUDIANTES GRADUADOS DE ESTUDIOS HISPÁNICOS (TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY) Call for Papers Título de la conferencia: Traduciendo Movimientos Sociales Viernes 21 de marzo sábado 21 de marzo 2014 La relación entre el discurso intelectual y la raíz de los movimientos sociales ha sido siempre polémica y conflictiva, pero también ha ido configurándose a través de una interacción mutua. En la misma medida en que la producción de conocimiento ha formado e informado la dirección de los movimientos sociales, los mismos movimientos han moldeado la dirección de la actividad intelectual a lo largo de los años. En esta era global, estamos siendo testigos de una explosión de movimientos sociales que operan más allá de los modos tradicionales de las políticas representacionales que han definido la modernidad occidental. Los renombrados movimientos de justicia global como Occupy, los indignados españoles y las Organizaciones No- Gubernamentales, movimientos locales de naturaleza política como los Zapatistas o el MST, o los transnacionales como la Primavera Árabe, redes globales de insurgencia comercial y crimen, como representa la guerra contra el terrorismo y la guerra contra las drogas, e incluso la expansión de fundamentalismos religiosos y culturales. Como área fronteriza donde, en palabras de Gloria Anzaldúa, el tercer mundo ralla el primero y sangra, Texas está cruzada por muchos tipos de movimientos diferentes, lo que Toni Negri llama el movimiento de movimientos. La 4ª Conferencia de Estudiantes Graduados de Estudios Hispánicos trata de tomar una aproximación interdisciplinaria a las condiciones relacionadas con la traducibilidad de estos movimientos, movimientos que habitualmente exceden y desafían los sistemas que tratan de entenderlos, controlarlos e intervenirlos. Tales aproximaciones pueden incluir, aunque no son exclusivas, cualquiera de las siguientes intersecciones: Tratamientos culturales de los movimientos sociales, tanto en las artes plásticas como en literatura, cine o música. Aproximaciones lingüísticas que pueden incluir, aunque no son exclusivas, la traducción de las necesidades de determinados grupos sociales. La relación entre el conocimiento académico y los movimientos sociales, en campos tales como la filosofía, sociología, antropología o políticas sociales. El rol de la historia y la complejidad de la historicidad de los movimientos sociales Perspectivas desde los estudios étnicos y raciales, queer, género y/o estudios indígenas. Keynote Speakers: Glenn Martínez (linguist, Ohio State University) y Cristina Rivera Garza (escritora, University of California San Diego. PROPUESTAS: Los participantes deben enviar tanto propuestas de paneles como trabajos individuales. Las propuestas de los paneles deben incluir el nombre del panel propuesto, el organizador, y resúmenes de los trabajos individuales. Los resúmenes individuales no deben de exceder las 250 palabras, y deben incluir el centro de afiliación. Favor de enviar las propuestas antes del 28 de febrero del 2014 a María Gil Poisa, a la dirección electrónica
