In addition to marking the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution and Portugal's becoming a republic, 2010 is a year of important bicentennials. 200 years ago, while Spain began to refortify its national government at the Cadiz Cortes, the Spanish Empire was being challenged both on the Peninsula by Napoleonic France, as well as in its colonies. From Caracas to Guanajuato, Buenos Aires to Santiago, independence was declared and defended. Given theimpact of these historic moments in the Hispanic world, the Spanish Graduate Students Committee of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at The University of Chicago is organizing its Fourth Annual Conference.Keynote Speaker: Arcadio Díaz-QuiñonesEmory L.
