The bi-annual interdisciplinary conference of the Dominican Studies Association (DSA) invites the submission of papers in any disciplinary area focusing on Dominican studies. The conference seeks to explore the multiple narratives documenting the life experience of the Dominican people in the United States. The conference welcomes papers that document new knowledge about Dominicans, for example papers that offer comparative perspectives with other groups, highlight women’s work in the making of the Dominican community, study the Dominican literary production in Spanish in the U.S., the interception of institutional and community politics, and the impact of the second and third generations in U.S. society.
