5th International Conference on the Historical Links between Spain and North America

Relationships in Times of Crisis

April 24-26, 2019

During the past ten years, we have included in our daily life the concept of “crisis”. The original meaning of this concept was “decision”, “judgement”, “election” in a determinate situation to which a change of course, an alternative, an answer was necessary.

In October 1929, the New York stock exchange fell with the Wall Street Crash and caused the first global financial crisis. It has recently been the 10th anniversary of the bankrupt of the Lehman Brothers and the beginning of a new global crisis. The history of transatlantic relationships has been influenced by times of peak and difficulty, periods of conflict and different responses in times of change, in which the decisions taken, sometimes shared and others divergent, have determined the parallel or confronted course between the two sides of the Atlantic. Crisis may cross oceans but their solutions, answers and intervention models too. The 5th International Conference on the Historical Links between Spain and North America: “The Relationships in Times of Crisis” will enable us to wonder about the causes, consequences and answers that have taken place at a transatlantic level in difficult times.

Instituto Franklin de la Universidad de Alcalá, the City College of New York – Division of Interdisciplinary Studies and the Instituto Cervantes de New York, work together for the fifth year in organizing this conference through this Call for Papers in different fields and areas of study with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches to the historical links between Spain and North America.

The deadline has been extended to January 31st, 2019.
