The panel on Spanish Socio-historical Linguistics focuses on connections between Old and New World Spanish, and the special status of Spanish in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, highlighting the crucial role of contact and isolation as determining factors in the history of Spanish worldwide. The panel will also explore innovations which began through contact or isolation in medieval Spanish and which still persist in particular varieties of present-day Spanish. Ultimately, this colloquium creates connections among distinct geographical zones, different cultures, and varied linguistic contexts, exploring the central role of Spanish as a world language through a socio-historical lens.
