The graduate students of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Texas at Austin are pleased to announce the XXI Colloquium to be held on March 20-22, 2014. Presentations will be given in Spanish, Portuguese, English or a language related to the field of study.
The Iberian American world, with its amalgamated roots stands as a possible place from which to build decolonial performance practices that may present themselves as possibilities apart from the Eurocentric, hegemonic and homogenizing model. The goal of this colloquium is to present those instances in which (re)telling or (re)living colonized stories and performances can reclaim and decolonize our existence as a challenge to colonial discourse in order to provide a way unto alternative spaces from which to build new subjectivities.
Additional information forthcoming.
