Dominican Studies Association Conference 2020

Word Up is proud to be the bookseller for the Dominican Studies Association Conference taking place December 4-5, 2020. This year's topic is “Crisis of Truth, State of Emergency, and Social Responses: The Urgency of Dominican and Ethnic Studies in the Present Hour.” 

The Dominican Studies Association supports the diffusion of intellectual production by providing Dominican Studies scholars the opportunity to create supportive networks, cultivate alternative agendas beyond their respective institutions and address polemic issues impacting the homeland, local, and global Dominican diasporic communities.
