49th Annual Conference ASPHS

Event Description

The 49th Annual Conference of the ASPHS will take place on April 5-7, 2018 at the University Place Hotel and Conference Center at Portland State University in Oregon. The theme is “Converge,” a word that evokes the contacts and intersections that make history happen, and that can serve as a reflection point for our conference.  Our theme is intended to inspire rather than delimit submissions and, as in past years, the ASPHS invites session proposals for panels and/or individual presentations on any aspect of Iberian and Iberian-Atlantic history, art history, or literature.

The typical panel will include three papers, a chairperson, and a discussant. We welcome proposals for roundtable discussions of a particular work or theme. Proposals should include a 200-word abstract for each paper and a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant, including chairs and discussants. Please include each participant’s name and e-mail address, along with any requests for audio/visual equipment or other special requirements.

This year’s conference will feature keynote speaker Daniela Bleichmar of the University of Southern California. Bleichmar is an award-winning Historian and Art Historian of botanical expeditions in the 18th century and an authority on science in the Spanish and Portuguese empires more generally.

A second conference address will be given by historian Josep Calvet, of the University of Lleida, Spain. Calvet’s research focuses on the Franco dictatorship as well as the history of Pyrenean escape routes used by Jews and other refugees fleeing Nazi terror in the Second World War.

The deadline for submissions is 4 December 2017. Please submit proposals by email to the program coordinator, Gina Herrmann at asphssubmissions2018@gmail.com.
