Spanish Professor Invited to Present Papers at Two March Conferences
This month, Doreen O'Connor-Gómez, professor of Spanish, is covering miles while delivering the results of recent research. On March 8, she traveled to Florida International University to present the paper "La guinda de la mierda: Immigration and Madrid's Urban Youth" at the Sexta Conferencia Bianual de Estudios Culturales Españoles y Latinoamericanos. On March 14-15, she will head for the University of North Texas in Denton, where she has been invited to give a version of her forthcoming article, "Spectacle and Violence: Immigration in Spain Today" (Hispania, March 2008), at the Second International Conference: "Spanishness" in the Spanish Novel and Cinema of the 20th-21st Century. The latter work will be included as a chapter in her upcoming book, currently in progress.
