Thanks to everyone who made the conference a success!
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.
These two conferences will be held March 15-18, 2007 on the Arlington Virginia campus of George Mason University, approximately two miles from Washington DC, with easy Metro access to downtown Washington.
