First conceived in 2004, Kaleidoscope is intended to provide a forum for graduate students to present and develop original research in the field of Spanish American, Luso-Brazilian, or Iberian Studies. We remain committed to creating a setting for interdisciplinary dialogue in which graduate students can meet other researchers with similar academic interests and gain valuable professional experience. Panels will consist of three to four 20-minute presentations by graduate students and the conference will include a keynote address.
