More than 160 scholars from around the world will attend a four- day interdisciplinary conference on Spanish linguistics March 26 – 29 at The City College of New York. Themed "Spanish Contact, Expansion, and Transformation,” the 25th Conference on Spanish in the United States and 10th Conference on Spanish in Contact with Other Languages will be hosted by City College for the first time

It brings together researchers from various disciplines, including linguistics, sociology, anthropology, education, and legal studies, investigating a wide range of topics related to the Spanish language and Spanish-speaking communities in the United States.

“That CCNY is hosting the conference this year highlights the College’s commitment to, and recognition of, linguistic and ethnic diversity, as well as the importance of Spanish as the language of the most represented ethnic group in New York City and in the United States,” said Dr. Edwin M. Lamboy, associate professor and department chair, secondary education, at CCNY.
