ASPHS Modena, Italy, 2014: Call for Papers

This was on Espora, but in the interest of being comprehensive:

Call for Papers:
Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical studies 2014 conference in Modena, Italy

The 45th Annual Meeting of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies will take place 26-29 June 2014 at the University of Modena e Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy.  The program committee invites 250-word abstracts of proposed twenty-minute papers on topics on Iberian and Latin American history, literature, art, and religion from the sixth to the twenty-first centuries.  Planned sessions of three or four papers are welcome.

The conference will be held on the campus of the University of Modena e Reggio Emilia, home to a vibrant scholarly community in Iberian history.  During the banquet, which we hope to have in the splendid Palazzo Ducale, now home to the Modena Military Academy founded by Napoleon, the keynote speech will be given by Alfonso Botti, professor of contemporary history in Modena and Director of “Spagna contemporanea.”

The deadline for abstracts is 31 December 2013. Email submissions are encouraged. Abstracts may be submitted in English, Spanish, Portuguese, or Italian. Please indicate whether or not your presentation will require audio-visual equipment when you submit your abstract. Send inquiries and abstracts to
