The SLU-Madrid Spanish department's annual symposium testifies to a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and research. Graduate and undergraduate students presented their original research at this year's event, organized by Aitor Bikandi-Mejias, Ph.D.

The subjects varied widely, ranging from Latin American narrative to linguistic analysis. Spanish department faculty served as moderators, facilitating each session's discussions. Speakers included not only SLU-Madrid's own undergraduate and graduate Spanish students but also students from the Universidad de Zaragoza, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Uniwersytet Warszawski (Poland), and École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France).
