Meeting Description:

Since 1991, the Spanish in the US Conference has been held in conjunction with the Spanish in Contact with Other Languages Conference, allowing productive connections between researchers focusing on the US context and researchers investigating the entire Spanish-speaking world. In recent years, interest and participation have increased dramatically, thanks to both the growing public and scholarly recognition of Spanish-speaking communities in the United States. The conference is now held every two years, in odd years.

Desde 1991, el congreso sobre el español en los Estados Unidos se ha celebrado junto con el congreso sobre el español en contacto con otras lenguas, lo que ha permitido múltiples contactos entre investigadores centrados en el ámbito estadounidense y especialistas de otras partes del mundo hispanohablante. Durante los últimos años, el interés hacia estos temas ha crecido espectacularmente, gracias al reconocimiento público y académico alcanzado por la comunidad hispana en el país. Desde 2005, el congreso se celebra cada dos años, en años impares.
