NVCC’s President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. Delivers Keynote at Eighth Coloquio Internacional de Latino Artists Round Table

NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D. participated in the October 22-24 eighth annual Coloquio Internacional de Latino Artists Round Table (LART) delivering the keynote at the closing of the program on October 24.  The title of her presentation, in Spanish, was “Retazos de vida: Reflexiones de una académica-abuela” (translation: “Snapshots of Life:  Reflections of an Academic-Abuela”).  This is the second time President De Filippis has been invited by this organization to deliver the keynote address.  She was asked to participate in the conference due to her “knowledge on the subjects of Latin American women writers, feminism, and the relationships between mothers and daughters.”

President De Fillippis, who makes every effort to stay engaged in the field was able to continue practicing her research and writing through participating at LART. “It was a powerful experience,” said President De Filippis, “I am grateful to be able to share the joy and experience of literature and women’s studies with the NVCC community, and I look forward to their next conference."

In its eighth year of hosting international conferences, LART is a cultural organization based in New York City, and was founded in 1999. In the course of their conferences, LART has compiled two volumes of their proceedings, both of which include articles written by President De Filippis.  This international conference brings together writers from Spain, the Caribbean, and several U.S. cities. The theme of this year’s conference was, “The Image of Mother in Literature, Film, Performing Arts and Visual Arts: The Impact of the Mother in Our Lives.”  The event was held at the La Nacional-Centro Español de Manhattan.
