The inaugural World Languages International Conference seeks to address the issues of Emotion, Memory, and Gender from the perspective of Cultural Studies. Hence, the organizers welcome papers reflecting on the link between the aforementioned topics in disciplines such as literature, language, sociology, history, philosophy, ethics, global studies, visual arts among others. It is also the objective of the conference to bring together both scholars and community partners, particularly individuals and groups who have relied on memory to survive emigration or forced displacement and have now found a home in Boise. A special panel will consider the role played by women in the Basque diaspora and will examine the relevance of memory and emotion in their adaptation.
