This conference seeks to create an interdisciplinary meeting point for academic and artistic explorations of both US and British Latinidades, and to inspire and facilitate dialogue around key issues and foci for Latinx Studies and identities in the UK. For the event, we wish to create a diverse programme that engenders interactions between established knowledge and critical approaches from US Latinx Studies and the still-burgeoning UK field, and to provide opportunities for the showcasing of current research in these areas by UK-based scholars (on both US and UK Latinx-focused topics) and Latinx creative arts in the UK.
The following sessions can be booked separately:
"We still fight in the dark". Migrants in Action Performance.
Documentary Film Screening: Being Eñye
Sponsored by the Institute of Languages, Cultures and Societies (ILCS), University of London, and the University of Leicester Institute for Advanced Study (LIAS)
