6th International Conference on the Historical Links between Spain and North America
Encounter, Innovation, Sustainability and Transformation
In the present era, scientific advance, technological innovation, cross-border exchanges, and other phenomena associated with globalization fuel discovery and transformation with profound consequences for the human experience. The Sixth Annual Congress on the Historical Links Between Spain and North America invites submissions that engage themes of discovery, innovation, and transformation in a variety of forms – artistic, economic, literary, political, scientific* – and address the social implications of this interconnectedness in either a historical or a contemporary perspective. The City College of New York - Division of Interdisciplinary Studies, the Instituto Cervantes of New York, and the Instituto Franklin de la Universidad de Alcalá join for the sixth year in organizing this conference through this call for papers in different disciplines and areas of study with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches to the historical links between Spain and North America. As always, the primary aim of the conference is to provide a meeting place for academics and professionals with an interest in other disciplines related to this subject as well as to interact with other members within and outside their own areas of specialization. The conference is organized in sections with different focal points. The following topics will be prioritized:
- Colonial and Postcolonial Studies.
- Cultural Studies.
- International Relations.
- Economy and Labor.
- Science and Technology.
- Environmental and Sustainability Studies.
