Annual Colloquium

36th Annual Colloquium - Wednesday, October 12, 2022

Creativity, Community, Networks:
Breaking Boundaries, Building Knowledge 

Our annual colloquium is back! Please join us for the Department's 36th Annual Colloquium, which will take place on an emblematic date for the Spanish-speaking world, October 12, a day that reminds us all of a collective trauma. For this reason, this year our Landsdown speaker, writer & psychoanalyst, Lola López Mondéjar,  will analyze the links between trauma and creativity in her talk titled "Creatividad, trauma y escritura." Join us in the Clearihue Building, CLE A025, or via Zoom. 

REVISION Oct 12: Afternoon sessions begin at 2:30pm (H.Cazes) and 3:30pm (J. Grossi). This year's Colloquium schedule is filled with exciting and thought-provoking hands-on activities as well as online talks. We hope you’ll take advantage of the rich array of topics and participate in this renewed effort to build a more resilient and supportive community around the multiplicity of languages and cultures that are represented in this department.

Ms. López Mondéjar will also direct a creative writing workshop for our upper-level Spanish students on October 11, CALL Facility, Clearihue Builing A025 from 9:30am to 11:30am. This event is reserved for students with an intermediate to advanced level of Spanish.

You can read Lola’s novels, short stories and essays thanks to the support of the UVic library.  

Everyone Welcome!

The annual Colloquium involves students in the department and interested members of the community to engage, participate and discover through presentations by department members, other UVic departments, and prominent visiting Hispanists and Italianists.
