FYI: Philippine Lit in Spanish symposium (Antwerp), CFP

This CFP came to my e-mail inbox today; it is not a PSG or AAS event but I thought that it might interest other PSG members, especially those based in Europe.  –Megan


I have the pleasure to announce the opening of the Call for Papers for participating in the International Symposium “Philippine Literature in Spanish in the Context of Hispanic-Asian Studies” that will take place between 3rd and 5th December 2018, at the University of Antwerp (Belgium).

This symposium aims to contribute to the consolidation of the field of Philippine writings in Spanish, as a central subject within the emerging area of Hispanic Asian Stuides. It is being organized by the Department of Literature from the University of Antwerp, and by the Université Clermont-Auvergne from France, with the support of IHRIM LyonCenter of Mexican Studies from the University of AntwerpInstituto Cervantes and Asociación BETA for Early Career Doctors in Hispanism. Proposals can be submitted by e-mail to and until 30th May 2018

We think that it will be a unique opportunity for scholars in Philippine studies to gather, and we are sure that it will be a very fruitful meeting. That is why we encourage all of you to participate and to share this CfP with anyone that you might think that might be interested in the topic(s) proposed. We have also opened a call for applications for a participation grant of 500€.

All the information has been uploaded to our website: call for papers, inscription, grant, addresses… As you will see, Antwerp is 35 minutes away by direct train from Brussels Airport (Zanventem) and 56 minutes away from Amsterdam-Schiphol airport. If you might have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

With all the best wishes from the organizing committee.
