  • Happy Birthday, Hispania!
    • Abstract: Welcome to Hispania’s 100th year of publication! We anticipate a celebration that looks forward to the journal’s future as well as provides an opportunity to reflect back on Hispania’s long and distinguished record of scholarly publication. Hispania is the flagship journal of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP). The journal’s founding Editor-in-Chief, Aurelio M. Espinosa (Stanford), summarized the journal’s original charge as “the betterment of the teaching of Spanish in our schools and colleges” (qtd. in Walsh 822). By 1944, Portuguese was added to the mission of the AATSP and the journal broadened its scope. Since its inception, Hispania has evolved. Its content and format have ... Read More

  • Literatura cubana: Del terruño al Universo
    • Abstract: La Palma Real (Roystonea regia) es el árbol nacional de Cuba, cuya imagen puede verse, incluso, adornando majestuosa el Escudo Nacional. Por su esbeltez y el penacho que la corona, que semeja una cabellera femenina liberada, José Martí calificó las palmas reales, desde su óptica de exiliado, como “novias que esperan”. Estos árboles gráciles no necesitan cultivo alguno: nacen firmes de manera espontánea, a golpe de sol de arrebato y telones de lluvia tropical. A resultas de ello, desde mucho antes de la llegada de los españoles y hasta nuestros días, el palmar constituye la imagen más icónica, generalizada y estable del paisaje cubano, cubriendo todos los campos de la Isla. Sin embargo, no pocas veces las palmas ... Read More

  • Proficiency or Exposure?: Rethinking Foreign Language Requirements within
           College Curriculum Reviews
    • Abstract: United States universities have included language among their core requirements since their inception. In 1665, Harvard University President Charles Chauncy proclaimed that “in the first yeare after admission, for foure dayes of the weeke, all Students shall be exercised in the study of the Greeke and Hebrew Tongues” (qtd. in Maccoby 1971). The fourth semester language requirement most common today imposed itself in the 1980s and 90s, with the takeoff of teaching methodologies focusing especially on proficiency—“the ability to use language in real world situations in a spontaneous interaction and non-rehearsed context” (ACTFL 2015: 4). Existing time-to-proficiency estimates (still largely current) established that ... Read More

  • Capaz and Quizás in Argentine Spanish: Epistemic Adverbs with Mood
           Variability
    • Abstract: 1. IntroductionIn language, epistemic modality allows speakers to express the possibility or likelihood of events occurring (Nuyts 2001; Ojea 2005). Example (1) demonstrates one way in which a limited possibility is expressed, namely through the use of an epistemic adverb like quizás ‘maybe.’ Another way in which some languages, like Spanish, express epistemic modality is through the indicative or subjunctive mood, where comparatively the indicative expresses an increased likelihood of the event occurring (1), while the subjunctive expresses a decreased likelihood of the event occurring (2) (Butt and Benjamin 2013; Pountain and Kattán-Ibarra 2003).(1) Quizás viene (I) mañana.(2) Quizás venga (S) mañana.These two ...

  • Guarani Morphology in Paraguayan Spanish: Insights from Code-Mixing
           Typology
    • Abstract: An oft-noted characteristic of colloquial Paraguayan Spanish is the “intrusion” of particles from Guarani. In (1), we show the occurrence of Guarani (a) interrogative markers; (b) emphatic markers; (c) plurals; (d) imperatives; (e) intensifiers; and (f) diminutives.1 These particles occur exceptionally frequently in Paraguayan Spanish, with their original morphological form and meaning (Granda 1980). They are assumed to result from interference or borrowing (Gómez Rendón 2008; Granda 1980, 1996; Krivoshein de Canese and Corvalán 1987; Penner, Acosta, and Segovia 2012; Usher de Herreros 1976).¿Entendite, pa?entendiste=paunderstood.2sg =q‘Did you understand?’ (Granda 1980: 62)Así co é la vidaasí=ko     es   la ...

  • La diferenciación léxica del español de América: Anglicismos
           jurídicos e institucionales en la Colonia tardía
    • Abstract: Las primeras importaciones léxicas del inglés en la lengua española se fechan a finales del siglo XVIII y comienzos del XIX. En esta etapa de orígenes, la historia de los anglicismos presenta grandes vacíos informativos en el plano diatópico y documental. Geográficamente, la primera etapa anglicista del español solo se ha analizado en el contexto europeo (Dworkin 2012: 213; Gómez Capuz 1996: 1290; Páramo García 2003: 10–25). En efecto, el contacto del inglés con el español en el Nuevo Mundo, especialmente significativo durante las guerras de Independencia, falta en las historias del español moderno. Este sesgo eurocentrista del actual panorama investigador podría superarse aplicando la nueva infraestructura ... Read More

  • Revitalización y transculturación: El camino de la fe de Jehú Malacara
           en Generaciones y semblanzas y Claros varones de Belken
    • Abstract: Algunos de los elementos culturales latinoamericanos más interesantes son las tradiciones ligadas a veneraciones católicas. Estos actos pueden observarse continuamente en las naciones hispanoparlantes en donde mantienen una unidad identitaria a pesar de cualquier variación en su práctica o escala. En la mayoría de los núcleos católicos puede verse la unión de comunidades a través de los sentimientos de gratitud y amor contenidos en los distintos símbolos de las devociones. El respeto u honor allí contenidos eventualmente transforman a sus habitantes y hacen que estas devociones se difuminen a través de las generaciones sin importar las presiones sociales que afectan la vida de los católicos. En este trabajo se ... Read More

  • Memorias y recuerdos de olvidadas liras: María Rosa Gálvez
    • Abstract: Resulta difícil no apreciar el sentido último del anterior epigrama encomiástico publicado en el Diario de Madrid el 14 de octubre de 1806. El hecho de que ahí se subraye la excepcional singularidad de la figura de la escritora—“sola española poetisa del tiempo presente”, “sola discreta Musa”—no oculta que esta misma redundancia la califica contradictoria y simultáneamente como creadora e inspiradora, sujeto y objeto, agente y paciente. Si bien en cuanto musa aparece supeditada en muerte al dominio de Apolo y a la cárcel simbólica de dicho epigrama, María Rosa Gálvez (1768–1806), como escritora en vida y sujeto enunciador, es extraordinariamente consciente de este lugar equívoco, a menudo imposible, que su obra ...

  • Sung with Ink and Paper: Nicomedes Santa Cruz and the African Strand in
           Peru
    • Abstract: In Latin America the birth of the nation, though forged in the fires of humanistic liberation from colonial shackles, did not effectively terminate cultural domination. In fact, as Walter Mignolo observes, “the colonial difference” continues to operate today. The concept of “colonial difference” may be understood as the physical and imaginary space where two nations meet, but also as the space within a nation where the struggle for different meanings and signification takes place (x).1 Today there is a sense that ethnicity, race, and heterosexuality have stopped functioning as transcendental signifiers, as organic warrantors of authenticity and originality and therefore representative of master narratives of the ...

Falta, sin embargo, avanzar en la inserción de las autoras en el canon de las literaturas peninsulares e integrar de manera efectiva el análisis de sus obras como fuentes para la investigación de hitos históricos y procesos sociales fundamentales para la construcción de la identidad colectiva española (Aznar Soler y Vilches-de Frutos 303–04; Vilches-de Frutos, “Entre ondas” 31–32). En este contexto ha comenzado recientemente la incorporación de las autoras a la extensa investigación realizada sobre el exilio literario republicano de 1939. Existe todavía un déficit ... Read More

    • Abstract: Few Brazilian novels express the feelings of alienation and oppression experienced during Brazil’s military dictatorship (1964–85) more intensely than Lygia Fagundes Telles’s original work As meninas.1 Published in 1973 at the end of a particularly repressive two-year period, As meninas offers a powerful critique of patriarchal authoritarianism as manifested in political, social, and family contexts. Set in the 1960s, the novel depicts the lives of three young women marked by the morality and constraints of a patriarchal world. Fathers do not appear physically in As meninas—there are no father-tyrants, or even mother-tyrants, who strictly control their daughters’ lives—yet patriarchal shadows loom large over the ...

  • Gender in Hispanic Literature and Visual Arts eds. by Bolaños-Fabres,
           Patricia, Tania Gómez, and Christina Mougoyanni Hennessy (review)
    • Abstract: The editors of Gender in Hispanic Literature and Visual Arts aim “to reveal the cultural perspective around gender in the Hispanic world” (ix). Moreover, because today’s “theoretical approaches” must account for “infinite gender identities within a continuous spectrum,” the issues at stake, namely the power of “Western patriarchal and privileged androcentric systems,” require that the “mimetic mediums of social values and stances,” namely literature and cinema, be addressed by a “polyphonic” range of viewpoints (ix–x). To this end, with an eye toward exposing strategies of resistance, the ten contributors consider works of fiction, poetry, performance, and film from artists of Latin America and Spain. The intended ... Read More

  • The Improbable Conquest: Sixteenth-Century Letters from the Río de la
           Plata eds. by García Loaeza, Pablo, and Victoria L. Garrett (review)
    • Abstract: En uno de sus poemas más difundidos y celebrados, “Fundación mítica de Buenos Aires,” Borges escribe: “La tarde se había ahondado en ayeres, / los hombres compartieron un pasado ilusorio/. … A mí se me hace cuento que empezó Buenos Aires: / La juzgo tan eterna como el agua y el aire.” The Improbable Conquest, desde su mismo título, se configura como un libro recorrido por la misma problemática. Incluso puede afirmarse que, desde un campo discursivo diverso, y en otro idioma, esta reflexionada colección de documentos examina y confirma un repertorio de incógnitas, perplejidades e incertidumbres fuertemente relacionadas con las poetizadas por el texto de Borges.The Improbable Conquest: Sixteenth-Century Letters from ...

    • Abstract: En Crisis y reemergencia: El siglo XIX en la ficción contemporánea de Argentina, Chile y Uruguay (1980–2001), Verónica Garibotto resalta el hecho de que la ficción contemporánea no ha sido analizada ideológicamente y, para ello, tiene la intención de responder a dos preguntas: ¿Por qué reaparece el siglo XIX en la ficción posdictaduras del Cono Sur? y ¿Cuáles son las implicaciones ideológicas y políticas de esta reemergencia? Este sugestivo pensamiento dialoga con la noción de lo que la autora denomina “sujetos de enunciación y estrategias discursivas” para aclarar los discursos ideológicos decimonónicos, su continuidad y su transformación, recurriendo a la teoría poscolonial y al marxismo cultural.En el capítulo ...

En esta, la autora sitúa los parámetros de su estudio. Establece su acercamiento a Ramírez no solo ya en su relación con Darío y la literatura nicaragüense, sino, además, en su relación con la historia de Nicaragua en su entorno centroamericano. Señala su intención de examinar la construcción de una literatura nacional nicaragüense en el siglo XX y, más específicamente, durante el período revolucionario (1979–90).

  • Power and Corruption in the Early Modern Portuguese World by Erik Lars
           Myrup (review)
    • Abstract: Erik Myrup’s Power and Corruption in the Early Modern Portuguese World explores the composition, function, and consequence of social networks within Portugal’s vast colonial empire, demonstrating the wide gap between imperial theories and colonial practices. Since extant research has much to say about the colonial state but remains relatively silent on the relationships upon which the whole system was built, Myrup’s work focuses on the latter. Over the course of the study he attempts to recreate the “complicated mosaic of social hierarchies” (2) that defined the Portuguese empire by probing “beneath the surface of formal colonial government” (3).The work is divided into three sections (Europe, South America, and ...

Con estas palabras enigmáticas, Eric W. Nye abre la introducción del volumen titulado John Kemble’s Gibraltar Journal: The Spanish Expedition of the Cambridge Apostles, 1830–1831: un libro de gran erudición en el que se aúnan política, aventura, literatura, muerte y, claro está, amor. En él, el autor no solo transcribe un texto histórico y literario, es decir, los escritos personales de John Kemble (1807–57), sino que también añade cartas de colegas y de familiares—dispuestas en los apéndices—, y que constituyen un complemento excepcional al diario.

    • Abstract: One of the most significant aspects of the programming activities of the MOMA, with all the influence that it has on the American grasp of the arts, has been its focus on Latin America, through its formal exhibits, its calendar of events, and its list of publications. This focus has corresponded, in general, to the opening toward Latin America that has occurred in the New York City arts scene in recent decades, but no metropolitan institution is better situated, both professionally and in terms of general public awareness, than the legendary MOMA. Thus, this volume of the writings of Brazilian arts scholars Mário Pedrosa (1900–81) is indeed a welcome event.Pedrosa is considered to be a key figure in the criticism ... Read More

  • El espectáculo de la violencia en el cine mexicano del siglo XXI by
           Guadalupe Pérez-Anzaldo (review)
    • Abstract: Guadalupe Pérez-Anzaldo’s El espectáculo de la violencia en el cine mexicano del siglo XXI powerfully analyzes three of the most representative films from recent Mexican cinema: Conejo en la luna (dir. Jorge Ramírez Suárez, Mexico, 2004), a paranoid-filled psycho-thriller; Casi divas (dir. Issa López, Mexico, 2008), a female-empowerment romantic comedy; and El infierno (dir. Luis Estrada, Mexico, 2010), a narco-drug, violence-centered comedy. Before exploring in depth the aforementioned films, the author offers in chapter 1 an overview of violence in Mexican history, including its independence movement, the Mexican revolution, and other upheavals (the Cristero War, Tlatelolco 1968, today’s daily drug-fueled ...

These narratives are represented within contexts of sociopolitical strife and gender inequality within Latin American realities, revealing a “poetics of madness” or literary techniques that defy language, make sociopolitical crises tangible and register cultural perceptions of mental illness.This book is original in establishing a dialogue between theories on madness, such as Foucault’s, from the Anglo-European tradition, and ...

  • The Discourse of Flânerie in Antonio Muñoz Molina’s Texts by Richard
           Sperber (review)
    • Abstract: Richard Sperber, in The Discourse of Flânerie in Antonio Muñoz Molina’s Texts, analyzes Antonio Muñoz Molina’s texts written between 1987 and 2009. In the five thematically organized chapters that are divided into sections, Sperber provides the readers with a thorough introduction to flânerie and underscores the ways in which Muñoz Molina’s literature diverges from its Parisian roots. Flâneur comes from the French noun “flâneur” which means loafer, lounger or stroller. Traditionally, flâOFSJF entails a character who, from their surroundings, thrives off aesthetic pleasure (Baudelaire) and then alienates himself (Benjamin). Sperber, on the other hand, illustrates the ways in which Muñoz Molina breaks ties with the ... Read More

The book is made up of two parts accompanied by a short prologue.Chapter 1 of “Primera parte: El modo y la modalidad” presents a descriptive summary of various studies on modality, some on Japanese alone, others on Spanish alone, and a few contrasting Spanish and Japanese. Through the discussion, the author explains how mood distinction in Spanish (i.e., the indicative and subjunctive) is correlated with modality. He concludes that studying Japanese modality helps to understand Spanish modality and vice versa. Unfortunately, all studies ... Read More

  • MicroQuijotes 2 by Juan Armando Epple (review)
    • Abstract: Don Quijote is clearly a gift that keeps on giving. Miguel de Cervantes’s narrative is inspirational, in multiple senses of the term. Consumers of many ilks take pleasure in the reading process itself, which, more likely than not, will lead one to ponder the literary, philosophical, socio-historical, and ideological strains of a text that seems to point in infinite directions. From the publication of the two parts in 1605 and 1615, respectively, Don Quijote has been a bestseller and a critical sensation. Part 2 acknowledges the impact of Part 1, which became popular throughout Europe and, as of around 1608, began to be circulated in the New World. In this case, success comes with a price, for an intruder who adopts ... Read More
