Language, Image, Power Conference
The purpose of the “Language, Image, Power: Luso-Hispanic Cultural Studies Theory and Practice” conference is to take up the history, evolution and future of Luso-Hispanic Cultural Studies as both a discipline and a set of working practices. Stuart Hall famously encouraged us to think of culture as a “site of negotiation, the arena of consent and resistance where the struggle for and against a culture of the powerful is engaged.” With this in mind, the goal of this conference is to share ideas about how Luso-Hispanic Cultural Studies has grown out of and radically reconsidered some of the basic premises of British Cultural Studies since the 1960s to address the many cultures of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking world.
