I don't think so. Yesterday was a late teaching day and I didn't have a chance to look. But I'll be in a meeting with Susan Brown later today and, since she's at Guelph, she might know better than me.

I was thinking of writing to the organiser and letting him/her know about us. Do you have any word from the SC?

Call for Papers
International Virtual Conference: Afro-Hispanic Studies in Africa/Africa in Afro-Hispanic Studies.  4-8 March, 2013

Afro-Hispanic Studies in Africa/Africa in Afro-Hispanic Studies is a multidisciplinary online conference designed to examine new insights that are brought by a transnational inquiry into Afro-Hispanic cultural expression. The online format of this conference is fundamental to the underlying goal of forging connections and transcending personal, geographical and disciplinary barriers to appreciating the transnational dimensions of African cultural expression. It is also key to embracing the complexity of voices, media of representation and modes of expression within contemporary African arts and cultures in a global context.

Convocatoria:

Conferencia Internacional Virtual: El afro-hispanismo en África / África en el afro-hispanismo. 4-8 de marzo de 2013

El afro-hispanismo en África / África en el afro-hispanismo es una conferencia multidisciplinar online diseñada para examinar las nuevas apreciaciones que surgen de una investigación transnacional sobre la expresión cultural afro-hispánica. El formato online de esta conferencia es primordial para el objetivo fundamental de establecer conexiones y de transcender las barreras personales, geográficas y disciplinarias que impiden apreciar las dimensiones transnacionales de la expresión cultural africana. También es clave para abrazar en un contexto global la complejidad de voces, medios de representación y modos de expresión dentro de las artes y las culturas contemporáneas de África.
