Please submit a title and a 250-word abstract of the panel, workshop, or paper you would like to present.  It may be current research or creative work conducted within the past two years, whether published or not.  The symposium’s central focus is on U.S. themes, but international work that includes U.S. Hispanics/Latinx is welcome.
