Horror vacui: 5th Annual Graduate Student Conference

3/30/18, 8:00 AM

About this event

The graduate students of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies are excited to announce that this spring we will be holding our 5th annual International Graduate Conference on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota.

Through the Latin expression horror vacui we intend to synthesize a comprehensive Western tradition of the creation of and approach to different kinds of emptiness, be they linguistics, political, cultural, or artistic voids, whose mere existence generates anguish and, thereby, legitimizes the strategies of their occupation and suppression.

Keynote Speakers:
Professor Yuri Herrera (Tulane University)
Professor Manuel Díaz Campos (Indiana University)

The conference will include a reception for the keynote speakers, and the screening event of the documentary film titled "The Pearl Button" (2015) by internationally renowned Chilean documentary film director Patricio Guzmán.

Event Location
  • Coffman Memorial Union
