Desde su primer encuentro en 1980, el congreso sobre el español en los Estados 
Unidos reúne a investigadores de varias disciplinas –como lingüística, 
sociología, antropología, educación, estudios legales, entre otras– dedicados al 
análisis de temas relacionados con el español y las comunidades hispanohablantes 
en los Estados Unidos. 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.

Los dos congresos tendrán lugar los días 15-18 de marzo, 2007 en el campus de 
Arlington Virginia de la Universidad George Mason, a una milla de Washington DC, 
con fácil acceso por metro al centro de la ciudad.



Plenary speakers 
Carol Klee, University of Minnesota

Roundtables 
In addition to plenary addresses and individual papers, the 2007 conference will 
host two special roundtables designed to encourage interaction between academic 
researchers and professionals working outside of academia: 
– Spanish and the media, organized by María Carreira (California State 
University-Long Beach). 
– Educational policies and practices affecting Spanish in the US, organized by 
Ana Roca (Florida International University).

Submissions are invited for papers on original, unpublished research on any area 
related to Spanish in the United States or Spanish in contact with other 
languages including but not limited to the following: bilingualism, educational 
policies and practices, formal aspects of US Spanish, heritage language learning 
and teaching, language and identity, language and the law, language change, 
language contact, language ideologies, language in politics and politics of 
language, language maintenance, language planning, language policy, language 
rights, linguistic variation, mass media and Spanish, Spanish in the 
professions, and Spanish and the economy. 

Papers may be given in Spanish or English, with papers in Spanish especially
