Rethinking the Americas: Crossing Borders and Disciplines
The 2000/01 Warren Center Fellows are hosting a conference April 4th
through April 6th at Vanderbilt University entitled Rethinking
the Americas: Crossing Borders and Disciplines. The program will
be the culminating activity of their fellows program year, during which
the participants examined the theme Rediscovering the New World:
Exploring Lines of Contact among the Americas and within the United
States. Fellows met weekly at the Warren Center and considered
the various ways in which the cultures of North, Central, and South
America have been defined, particularly since the beginning of the nineteenth
century. Their cross-disciplinary deliberations considered the Americas
as a single entity, identifying different cultural formations that have
taken shape and considering their social and political implications
for the present and future. The 2000/01 Fellows Program was co-directed
by Earl E. Fitz, professor of Spanish and Portuguese and director of
the program in comparative literature; Cathy L. Jrade, professor and
chair of Spanish and Portuguese; and William Luis, professor of Spanish
and professor of English.
