Reflecting on the Spanish Caribbean is a working group of the Inter-University Program for Latino Research (IUPLR) composed of academics whose work focuses on Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and people in the United States who trace their ancestry to those countries. The group came together a year ago with the main objective of creating a multidisciplinary area of study, particularly at the graduate level, specialized in the Spanish Caribbean. The present conference, The Spanish Caribbean: Toward a Field of its Own, is the first outreach by the Working Group to a larger community of specialists and students, and to the general public interested in the Spanish Caribbean.


The conference seeks to: 1. provide a space for conversations across the disciplines centered on research and analysis regarding the peoples of this region and their respective communities in the United States; and 2. create a public platform to collectively build this new field of study.
