About Us

The Organizing Committee of the Kaleidoscope Graduate Student Conference at UW-Madison is the organization responsible for the planning and execution of an annual event, a tradition which was begun in 2004 and which has since brought together master’s and doctoral students from this and other universities throughout the United States to present their work in Spanish and Portuguese literatures and languages, as well as in other disciplines in the humanities.
