Founded in 1980, the Spanish in the US Conference brings
together researchers from various disciplines – such as linguistics,
sociology, anthropology, education, and legal studies – investigating a
wide range of topics related to Spanish and Spanish-speaking communities in
the United States. Since 1991, the Spanish in the US Conference has been held
in conjunction with the Spanish in Contact with Other Languages Conference,
allowing productive connections between researchers focusing on the US
context and researchers investigating the entire Spanish-speaking
world. In recent years, interest and participation have increased
dramatically, thanks to both the growing public and scholarly recognition of
Spanish-speaking communities in the United States. The conference is now held
every two years, in odd years.
