New PhD Program to Begin Fall 2013
Posted: November 20, 2012
Beginning in Fall 2013, we will offer a PhD program that includes three major areas of study: Iberian and Latin American Literatures and Cultures; Literatures and Cultures in Portuguese and Spanish; and, Iberian and Latin American Linguistics. These tracks seek to address important themes, including the cultural and linguistic diversity in Latin American, Iberian, Latino, trans-Atlantic, and trans-Pacific worlds, as well as the impact of the ensuing and continued contact among indigenous people, Africans, and Europeans as a result of conquest, slavery, displacement, and immigration. At the same time, our program addresses the impact of new media and methodologies of thinking, learning, and teaching in contemporary environments marked by new technologies of language and representation. These flows, encounters, and intersections shape the research and teaching of our faculty, resulting in a graduate program that is highly intersectional, interdisciplinary, and intercultural, as well as transnational, and hemispheric.
