Event Date: 05/09/2019 - 06/09/2019

The conference 'Transnational Perspectives on the Study of Spanish in Society' takes place at the University of Edinburgh on 5-6 September 2019.

Languages travel and adapt to the new circumstances faced by their speakers. The growth of the Spanish language has always been transnational in nature, insofar as any expansion has been grounded in cultural and economic exchange. Therefore, at this conference, we wish to bring together those with scholarly interests in the situation of the Spanish language in the contemporary world. 

Plenary speakers: 

  •  Jennifer Leeman, George Mason University
  •  Rosina Márquez Reiter, University of Surrey
  •  María Soledad Montañez and Naomi Wells, University of London
