Griffith University, Queensland, Australia, 16-19 June 2020

The Association of Iberian and Latin American Studies of Australasia organizes its 2020 Conference under the title Visions: Possibilities, performance and the past.

The conference ‘Visions’ seeks to explore the possibilities of seeing Iberian and Latin American worlds through different eyes. It embraces the sense of unsettlement that a vision brings, while understanding the possibility and promise that can derive from that moment of exchange.

Papers are welcome in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Papers and panels should consider the following themes within regions of Latin America, Spain, and Portugal. Considerations of the effects of Iberia and Latin America in Asia, Africa and the Pacific are also welcome:

  • Performance and creative practice
  • Conflict, violent change and resistance
  • Heritage and sites of encounter
  • Interventions and knowledge across history and cultures
  • Imagining lost or alternative futures
  • Literary and filmic encounters with the other
  • Embodiment and embodied interventions
  • Social movements to affect or resist change
  • Religious and charismatic leadership
  • Language, and communication of the ‘world that might be’
  • The struggle for social justice

Abstracts and panel proposals are due by 21 February 2020
