The biannual Charles F. Fraker Conference is organized by doctoral students in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor in honor of Professor Emeritus of Spanish Charles F. Fraker. Originally a venue for graduate students of Hispanic Studies to meet and discuss the subjects of their research, the conference has grown to include the work of students of many other fields and disciplines. In previous years, the Charles F. Fraker Conference has featured as its keynote speakers intellectuals such as Jacques Lezra, Alberto Moreiras, Jacques Rancière, Bill Brown, Michael Taussig, WJT Mitchell, and Robert T. Tally Jr. This year, we are excited to welcome Professor Eduardo Cadava who will deliver the keynote lecture and workshop. We will also enjoy panels with presentations from graduate students in our own department/university and from other institutions across the country and beyond, including UC Berkeley, Binghamton University, Boston University, University of Chile, University of Florida, Fort Hays State University, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, University of Houston, University of Illinois Chicago, John Hopkins University, Michigan State University, Northwestern University, University of Notre Dame, The Ohio State University, Princeton University, UC Riverside, and University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The conference will take place on the 6-7th October 2023 at the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor and features Dr. Eduardo Cadava, Philip Mayhew Professor of English
