Meeting Description:

Project #18 “History of the Spanish Language in the Americas” is a research
group that meets as part of the XVIII ALFAL International Congress to take
place next July in Bogotá, Colombia. This project seeks to advance the
description of Spanish since it was transplanted in the Americas as a result
of the Spanish conquest started in 1492. It studies how Spanish was
transformed in sounds and meanings throughout colonial times to the present
day. Cultural and linguistic aspects are studied as well as contact phenomena,
textual documentation, linguistic planning, i.e. any historical aspect that
has contributed to the formation of Spanish in the Americans in the regional
dialects that conform it.


Call for Papers:

XVIII ALFAL International Congress 
Bogotá D.C. - Colombia
July 24-28, 2017

Formation and Diachrony of the Spanish Language in the Americas: Pressing
Questions for its Analysis

The sessions of Project #18, “Historia del Español de América” (History of the
Spanish Language in the Americas) will be meeting as part of the XVIII ALFAL
Congress, to take place in Bogotá, Colombia on July 24-28 of 2017. We invite
the participation of anyone interested in presenting a paper on any of the
numerous aspects that are in need of urgent analysis to advance a better
understanding of the character and history of Spanish in the Americas.

To that effect, please submit by email a proposal with a title and an abstract
in Spanish and of no more than 300 words no later than January 30, 2017 to
Micaela Carrera de la Red (carreramicaela at gmail.com) and copy to Marta Luján
(draculalujan at yahoo.com). Please also include your name and that of the
institution you are affiliated.  

As in previous ALFAL meetings in which our Project “Estudio de la Historia del
Español de América” has functioned (Montevideo 2008, Alcalá 2011, João Pessoa
2014) the topic of the presentations is open, since we aim at a plurality in
the aspects treated, but also decidedly value the incorporation of new
theoretical or methodological approaches to the diachronic study of the
Spanish language in the American continent.

Nevertheless, in the recent International Congress on “El español de América:
historia y contactos”, which took place in Pisac (Cuzco, Perú) the past July,
many of the investigators who have regularly participated in meetings of
Project #18 delivered papers in a variety of topics that continue to be of
much interest for our group, such as the contact of Spanish and Amerindian
languages, the African contribution to Spanish, the textual corpera of diverse
areas dealt with pragmatic or semiotic methods, the study of main points of
grapho-phonology and of syntax, and the conformation of the lexicon in the
history of Spanish in the Americas. Without excluding any other topics, we
make a special call to those researchers who are investigating any of these
areas so that our next meeting translates into a real advance in our
understanding of the history of the Spanish language in the Americas.
