12th International Conference on Chicano Literature and Latino Studies

The Ethics of Hospitality and the Compromise with the Other in Chicano Literature and Latino Studies

Barcelona, June, 17-19th, 2020

Barcelona has always been an open host city. Through its current sanctuary plan, Barcelona Ciutat Refugi, the city is facing the humanitarian crisis resulting from the limitations of an excluding migratory system and the challenge of building a city model based on hospitality and respect for human dignity. From an awareness to these limits and challenges and their importance for the transformation of society and identity, this conference attempts to reflect on the ethics of hospitality in Chicano and Latino arts and literature in the United States.

The 12th International Conference on Chicano Literature and Latino Studies organized by HispaUSA and Universidad Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, in cooperation with Instituto Franklin-UAH, will be held in Barcelona, June, 17-19th, 2020.
