Sepharad as Imagined Community , September 2-3, 2014 (organized by José Ignacio Hualde and Mahir Saul)

This conference examines the formation and development of Judeo-Spanish in the Eastern Mediterranean lands of the Ottoman Empire and the varied cultural and identity-related roles that several oral and written manifestations of this language played for centuries and continue to play in the present for its speakers. The conference is focused in its topic, Judeo-Spanish, but broad in the spectrum of disciplinary perspectives on the themes that we would like to bring together, including perspectives from diverse fields such as Linguistics, History, Anthropology, Sociology, Literary and Cultural Studies and Religious Studies.
