Subjects of and for Central American-American Studies

A WORKSHOP

This workshop maps the broad conceptual parameters of Central American-American Studies and explores them through history, cultural and literary studies, and humanistic social sciences, as well as interdisciplinary frameworks. Engaging with this transnational U.S. population, Subjects of and for Central American-American Studies aims to proceed with the critical baton of academic conversation started after the historic 2012 Teresa Lozano Long conference at The University of Texas at Austin on “Central Americans and the Latino/a Landscape: New Configurations of Latina/o America” and the summer 2013 special issue of Latino Studies on "U.S. Central Americans: Representations, Agency and Communities."  

Questions to be worked through include: what is "Central American-American" (and the very language that names it), how is it brought into view, what is its past and future, how is it dialoguing with Latino/a Studies, and are there new geographic sites and analytic nests of possibilities?
