About this Event
On April 1st, the NULab will hold its fifth annual spring conference, showcasing the work of our faculty, graduate students, and research collaborators. This year, the conference will have the theme “What now?” and will share research on taking stock of current events, envisioning possible futures, and living with the unexpected.
The conference will feature a set of lightning talks and a keynote by Gabriela Baeza Ventura, associate professor of Hispanic literature, and Carolina Villarroel, Brown Foundation director of research for Arte Público Press, both at the University of Houston. The keynote will share insights from the development of the University of Houston's new U.S. Latino Digital Humanities Center. The center "serves as a venue for scholarship focused on the US Latino written legacy that has been lost, absent, repressed or underrepresented. "
The conference will be virtual, but we will have an in-person lunch and social gathering, in the "Central West" tent on the West Village Quad at Northeastern University from 10:30am to 4:30pm. All are welcome to join! Bring your laptop and listen to the conference, catch up with fellow attendees, and enjoy lunch, breakfast, or a snack.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. RSVP here. We can accept RSVPs for the virtual conference up to the day of the event, but if you will be joining us in person for food, please RSVP by March 28.
