Over the Wall/Saltar el muro:
Compromiso público y academia/Public Engagement & Academia

In current debates, the idea of a wall becomes a point of discussion from which to explore the relationship between public engagement and academia. Are the walls that separate intellectual, linguistic, artistic, social, and political practices insurmountable? How do we imagine these metaphors and what forms do they take? Who constructs them and who challenges them? When are they useful and when are they not? How do we cross them?

This congress proposes to jump over, perforate, cross, and tear down walls. It invites a transgression of academic hermeticism in order to overcome isolation and promote reflection on intellectual work, its social dimension and its relationship with the public. Through original investigations, we hope to discuss limits and their forms, whether they be self-imposed or constructed, and strategies to overcome these limits.

In order to approach these issues, we seek to reflect on the following themes, without limiting ourselves to them.

-Language of the wall and walls of language

-Points of departure for outlining walls

-Public engagement or “just another brick in the wall”

-Glotopolitics and other sociolinguistic challenges

-Contemporary language mapping

-Multilingualism and the preservation of languages

-Translation, demolitions and acculturations

-Identity, immigration and culture

-Intertextuality/Intermediality/Interdisciplinarity

-Walls and coloniality

-Gender/Género/Genre walls

-Bodies and walls

-Jumping over walls in performance practices

-Social networks: the virtual wall

-Walls and urban practices

The PhD Program in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages

El número de escritoras latinoamericanas publicadas en el siglo XXI va en aumento. Muchas de ellas, además, han ganado espacios entre nuevos lectores gracias a la traducción y difusión de sus obras por editoriales  en Nueva York; en ese sentido, la ciudad se ha convertido en un espacio fértil para crear puentes trasnacionales entre escritoras de las Latin-A-méricas, así como en un lugar de apertura que da cabida a nuevas voces.

Escritoras de las Latin-A-méricas. Hablan las narradoras inaugura un ciclo de conversatorios entre reconocidas escritoras. Se trata de un espacio donde ellas puedan entablar un diálogo cercano con el público académico acerca de sus obras, así como del vínculo existente entre la academia y el trabajo creativo en el contexto transnacional que une a Nueva York y a Estados Unidos con los países latinoamericanos.

Las cuatro narradoras invitadas son Sylvia Molloy y Lina Meruane (30 de setiembre) seguidas por Achy Obejas y Valeria Luiselli (4 de noviembre) en el Graduate Center de la City University of New York.

El evento es gratuito y abierto al público, organizado y auspiciado por el programa de doctorado en Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages de The Graduate Center, CUNY. Con el apoyo adicional de Classical and Modern Languages & Literatures of City College of New York, CUNY; el Doctoral Students’ Council; Feminist Press; Center for the Study of Women & Society, The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York y el Cinema Film Studies Group.

ANNUAL STUDENTS’ CONFERENCE

XXI Annual HLBLL Graduate Student Conference 
THE CITY: VOICES AND CREATIONS
April 14th and 15th, 2016
Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages
The Graduate Center, CUNY 365 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10016

The city is where voices converge, discuss, dialogue, question and form hierarchies.  It is the place where textualities come together, where languages, art, history and institutions are generated.  Rebellious voices, cultural edges and blind spots rise up from the city.

Voices invent the city; they make it something else and transport it out of itself.  Voices contest the discursive field.  They establish codes, genres, norms and registers: who speaks, who reads or who writes; what do they speak about, what do they read, what do they write; how and in what language(s), within what frameworks.

There are creations which move the city and its margins, between the academy and the market,  between the state and the masses, and among languages.  Languages contest powers and knowledges and even the limits between disciplines.

Keynote Speakers: Dr. Urayoán Noel (New York University), Dr. Bonnie Urciuoli (Hamilton College).

Charla sobre Sociolingüística: Latin@identity in Latin hip hop online

GC Linguistics Ph.D. / M.A. Program

Sociolinguistics Lunch Lecture Series

Spring 2016


Speaker:
 Matthew Garley – York College / CUNY

 

Title: Choutouts: Language contact and Latin@ identity in Latin hip hop online        

Abstract: Hispanic or Latin@ Americans feature prominently in many long-standing and continuing sociopolitical debates about immigration, assimilation, and culture, and the Latin hip hop community presents a particularly complex and controversial image. At the same time, this subculture provides a unique window into language contact and repertoires of language mixing and code-switching. This study investigates the use and mixture of Spanish and English varieties in Latin hip hop lyrics alongside language production in community interaction in new media, focusing on YouTube video comments. I examine the use of English and Spanish varieties in Latin hip hop in terms of both lyrics and community reaction/discussion of artists’ linguistic choices. Building on Cutler’s (2012) research on Chicano hip hop videos and comments, this qualitative analysis reveals further complexities of regional ties and demographic differences in the US-Latin@ community, identity performance, and authenticity through language use in Latin hip hop.

Detroit’s black and Latino LGBTQ communities

Professor of Gender Studies and American Studies at Indiana University, Marlon M. Bailey presents his rich first-person performance ethnography and memoir of dance, dress, and vogue ballroom competitions in Detroit’s black and Latino LGBTQ communities. By sharing his stories and experiences, Bailey demonstrates the ways such cultural formations are spaces of resistance that disrupt dominant notions of gender, sexuality, and community, and create alternative kinship structures.
