January 23rd: Second deadline for proposals submission
The presence of Hispanic culture in America is an intrinsic part of the true identity of the American people from their roots. America is Hispanic, it is European, it is African, it is Asian and that is what make it America. These roots take us on a trip back and forth from medieval Spain, crossing the ocean carrying conquistadors, crosses, language and culture to the New World and returning after the nineteenth century in science, technology, culture, democracy and English; thanks to this reciprocal influence born of the same tree. Hispanic America makes us aware of a common past, of belonging to the same group joined by two languages and also a shared historical destiny.
The Instituto Franklin de la Universidad de Alcalá, the City College of New York – Division of Interdisciplinary Studies and the Instituto Cervantes de New York, join for the third year in organizing this conference through this call for papers in different disciplines and areas of study with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches to the historical links between Spain and North America.

The primary aim of the conference is to provide a meeting place for academics and professionals with an interest in other disciplines related to this subject as well as to interact with other members within and outside their own disciplines in the areas of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The conference will be organized in sections with different coordinators. The following topics are given priority:

A. Educational exchanges and their impact on modern societies
B. Migratory movements and forming communities and networks
C. The influence of historical relations in foreign affairs today
D. Hispanic Culture and transatlantic culture
