This one day event will address the question about the state of the
disciplines of Hispanic Studies today and the new challenges that
Linguistics and Literature are facing, in particular with regards to the
crossing of disciplinary borders such as in Cultural Studies and in the
integration of Linguistics and Literature. Invited Panelists:
David Castillo, SUNY Buffalo
David William Foster, Arizona State University
José Ignacio Hualde, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
John Lipski, Pennsylvania State University
Each panelist will give a brief presentation and will actively participate
in the ensuing discussion, among themselves, and with the public.
Morning session: Linguistics vis à vis Literature and Culture
Afternoon Session: The challenges of Cultural Studies
Some of the issues to be discussed include:
• An understanding of the (dis)integration of linguistics and
• An examination of the effect that cultural studies have been having in the
field of literature
• An investigation of the rethinking of why a cross disciplinary approach
has not included linguistics as an important part of the interdisciplinary
• An exploration of the assumptions and/or notions about/of linguistics that
are circulating within the domain of literary/cultural studies
The workshop is part of an ongoing discussion which initiated in the pages
of the first volume of Hispanic Issues On Line.
