  • Um foco nos estudos luso-brasileiros
    • Abstract: Écom muito prazer que destacamos o ensino de Português na nossa materia do Estado-do-Estado na véspera do centenário da Hispania. Desde o início da minha função como editora (2010) Domnita Dumitrescu e eu temos trabalhado diligentemente para incluir um artigo e uma recensão crítica de livro (no mínimo) em cada número da Hispania que pertence aos assuntos de interesse aos que ensinam e fazem pesquisa sobre estudos luso-brasileiros. Um exemplo é o artigo premiado “AfroReggae: Antropofagia, Sublimation, and Intimate Revolt in the Favela” de John T. Maddox que apareceu na Hispania 97.3 (2014): 463–76. O artigo aparece na página da Hispania em www.aatsp.org (consulte “Open Access”). Para avançar o ... Read More

  • The AATSP and the Teaching of Portuguese
    • Abstract: I would first like to congratulate and thank Sheri Spaine Long, Editor of Hispania, for including this collection of essays centered on Fred P. Ellison and the State of Luso-Brazilian studies in the twenty-first century as the State-of-the-State Feature in this issue of the journal. While these essays provide an impressive tribute to Professor Ellison, they also provide important historical and up-to-date information about the status of Portuguese and Luso-Brazilian studies in K–12 programs and in post-secondary institutions in the United States. Throughout his career Fred P. Ellison worked tirelessly to promote the teaching and learning of Portuguese and Luso-Brazilian cultures. As part of his ... Read More

  • Fred P. Ellison and the State of Luso-Brazilian Studies in the
           Twenty-First Century
    • Abstract: Fred P. Ellison was born in Denton, Texas in 1922, the year of the Modern Art Week in São Paulo that launched modernismo, the vanguard movement in Brazil. After undergraduate studies in Romance Languages at the University of Texas and graduate study in Latin American letters at the University of California Berkeley, he went on to become one of the true pioneers of Luso-Brazilian studies in North America. He was a professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Texas in Austin from 1962 to 1991, and remained active after retirement. He passed away on 04 October 2014. To honor him in the city where he lived and worked for so many decades, former students and colleagues held a special ... Read More

  • Fred P. Ellison and Interamerican Imperatives
    • Abstract: In the study of modern languages, the various general and subdisciplines have taken shape over time in different spaces and situations, always in relation to evolving notions of the humanities, area studies, and critical imperatives. Professional clusters organized around national languages and literatures have institutional and personal histories alike. Memory and remembrance are keys to appreciating fully current notions and configurations of teaching missions, the mechanisms of critical inquiry, and diverse articulations with readerships of multiple provenances. Particular MLA forums owe special debts to dedicated and innovative individuals who worked tirelessly over decades to define and fortify both ... Read More

  • Fred P. Ellison and Portuguese Program Development
    • Abstract: The written record of Ellison’s involvement in Portuguese program development begins in 1964 when he became chairman of the Portuguese Language Development Group that met at several Modern Language Association meetings before being accepted by the AATSP in 1967. The record ends in the Fall 2003 edition of The Portuguese Newsletter in an interview conducted by Libby Ginway of the University of Florida. That record constitutes forty years of writing and collecting survey data, publishing reports, and advocating for Portuguese teaching and curriculum development in the US. Most of the writing appeared in this journal Hispania, the publication of the AATSP, an organization to which Ellison remained loyal during ... Read More

  • Modern Portuguese and the Narration of Brazil
    • Abstract: Modern Portuguese: A Project of the Modern Language Association was a package of film strips, prerecorded tapes, an instructor’s manual and a textbook first published by Knopf in 1971. It followed the model established by Modern Spanish that was also a project of the MLA published in 1960. The preface of Modern Portuguese traces its development in three phases: 1964–66 for planning and research, 1966–67 for writing and evaluation of a trial edition, and 1968–69 for preparation of the final edition (vii). The team of writers consisted of four linguists who were coordinated by Fred P. Ellison and Francisco Gomes de Matos. This short essay proposes that Modern Portuguese is both a language textbook ...

  • A Texas Sertão: Fred P. Ellison and Rachel de Queiroz
    • Abstract: Fred P. Ellison (1922–2014) was a Hispanist in the full sense of the term and a pioneer in Luso-Brazilian studies in the United States. In 1983 he was voted one of 20 Corresponding Members of the Brazilian Academy of Letters, as the seventh occupant of Chair 12, succeeded after his death by Mario Vargas Llosa. It is a privilege to add my voice to the deserved homage from the MLA to a great figure in Brazilian studies. To me, Fred was a friend and close colleague in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Texas at Austin during almost twenty years. For how many evenings did we entertain the ever-patient Ad Ellison for long hours with our fanciful plans for promoting study of Portuguese ... Read More

  • O tradutor e os seus trebelhos: Fred P. Ellison and Translation
    • Abstract: In Joaquim Machado de Assis’s novel Esau e Jacó, the narrator discusses, in typical self-conscious fashion, a (possible) epigraph for the book, which would serve as “um par de lunetas para que o leitor do livro penetre o que for menos claro” (18), and the relationship between author and characters, which he compares to that between a chess player and his pieces: Há proveito em irem as pessoas da minha história colaborando nela, ajudando o autor, por uma lei de idariedade, espécie de troca de serviço entre o enxadrista e os seus trebelhos. Se aceitas a comparação, distinguirás o rei e a dama, o bispo e o cavalo, sem que o cavalo possa fazer de torre, nem a torre de peão. Há ainda a diferença da ... Read More

  • “A imaginação de um ocidental” rumo à alteridade: Representações
           dos espaços (semi)coloniais de Macau em O caminho do Oriente de Jaime do
           Inso
    • Abstract: Em 1931 o romance de cariz etnográfico O caminho do Oriente do oficial de Marinha de Guerra e escritor português Jaime do Inso (1880–1967), recebe—ex aequo com Velo d’Oiro, de Henrique Galvão, e Poetas e prosadores, de José Ferreira Martins—o primeiro prémio do VI Concurso de Literatura Colonial, vindo a ser publicado um ano mais tarde, em pleno emergir do Estado Novo, numa edição de autor, o que nos leva a crer que terá sido redigido com o concurso em mente. O Concurso de Literatura Colonial (1926–69) é—tal como a Agência Nacional das Colónias (1925), o Secretariado de Propaganda Nacional (1934) e a revista de propaganda colonial O mundo português (1934–47)—uma das inúmeras estratégias culturais ao serviço ...

  • Machado de Assis’s Dom Casmurro and “Soneto de Natal”: The
           Calculated Mediocrity of a Mute Prophet
    • Abstract: In the introduction to a 1941 volume of Rudyard Kipling’s poetry, T. S. Eliot claimed that “When a man is primarily known as a writer of prose fiction we are inclined—and usually, I think, justly—to regard his verse as a by-product. I am, I confess, always doubtful whether any man can so divide himself as to be able to make the most of two such very different forms of expression . . .” (265).1 On the other side of the colonial landscape from Kipling, Eliot might just as easily have made the same observation about the Brazilian writer Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis (1839–1908), known for his innovative novels and short stories that share the “art of ellipsis, implication, [and] the resonance of the unsaid” of ...

  • “Somos índicos”: Questões de identidade e a representação dos
           indianos e do Índico na mundividência de Terra sonâmbula
    • Abstract: Ser de “nenhum mundo”, como o escritor nos diz, é ser de muitos. O atual território de Moçambique foi e é maioritariamente negro, mas a diversidade étnica, cultural e linguística que o caracteriza é enorme. Quando os portugueses chegaram à costa oriental africana, todo aquele território era já um ponto de cruzamento entre diferentes culturas, por lá passavam e/ou se fixavam (sobretudo por razões económicas e geopolíticas) swahili, árabes, indianos, chineses, mauricianos, indonésios, entre outros grupos étnicos. A chegada dos portugueses, no século XV, aos territórios da costa índica apenas reforçou a diversidade racial e cultural já existente nessa área, reforço que ocorreu em grande parte através da ...

  • Juan Rulfo and Machado de Assis: Toward an Integrated New Narrative
    • Abstract: Early in his life, the Mexican writer Juan Rulfo developed a passion for reading. When asked which books were most inspiring to him, he often cited Nordic authors and select writers from Spanish America. Equally frequent, however, were his commentaries on the Brazilian literary tradition, which he repeatedly described as “la más importante” (qtd. in Benítez 9). Rulfo’s near obsessive reading habits had a significant influence on his life and literary production, which includes a collection of short stories, El Llano en llamas (1953); his masterpiece novel, Pedro Páramo (1955); and a second novel produced originally for filmic adaptation, El gallo de oro (written between 1956–58, but first published in ...

  • Eusebio Vela’s Mexican Hagiographies: Self-fashioning in
           Eighteenth-century Theater
    • Abstract: Eusebio Vela, a playwright and actor in Mexico’s Coliseo in the early eighteenth century, has the strange distinction of having lost a Mexican origin that he never possessed. Generations of scholars, following the early nineteenth-century bibliographer José Mariano Beristáin de Souza, have believed that Vela was a “criollo nativo de la Nueva España” (de María y Campos 11–12); some, like Rodolfo Usigli, have celebrated Vela’s alleged work of cultural resistance to Spanish-born playwrights (México 58–59). In 1948, however, in the introduction to the first modern edition of Vela’s plays, Jefferson Spell and Francisco Monterde revealed the truth: the playwright was born in Toledo in 1688 and arrived in Mexico as a ...

  • Teaching Don Quixote in the Digital Age: Page and Screen, Visual and
           Tactile
    • Abstract: In the age of digital incunables, the ways in which media shape readers and texts highlight both the anxieties created by change and the creative expression that change affords. By bringing modern digital tensions to a discussion of Don Quixote, students can explore the arc of the novel’s existence from the first century of print to the first century of digital texts, and, ideally, simultaneously enrich their understanding of both cultural moments. In a small seminar geared towards upper-division undergraduate students, we take on the ambitious and joyful task of reading Miguel de Cervantes’s seventeenth century masterpiece in Spanish—with an introduction to the social and cultural context of the novel and ...

  • Benefits of an Interpretation Course for Foreign Language Learning and
           Development
    • Abstract: There is an urgent need in the United States for programs and coursework in interpreting and translation. Skilled linguists are in high demand—locally, statewide, nationally, and globally—in a variety of job fields, and that demand will only increase as the global market expands. As stated by Sonia Colina (2003) in her book Translation Teaching from Research to the Classroom, “As the number of translation courses and translation programs grows, so does the need for pedagogy of translation” (xiii). Language departments in most institutions realize the importance of interpretation and translation courses but may not have specialized faculty members or technological resources available to offer such courses ...

  • Co-teaching: Towards a New Model for Teacher Preparation in Foreign
           Language Teacher Education
    • Abstract: The field of second language teacher education has evolved over the past few decades. Since the 1960s, when the fields of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Applied Linguistics developed, there have been various approaches to second language teacher education. Richards (2008) explained that, around that time, with the advent of new teaching methodologies such as audiolingualism, came the need to offer short training programs for teachers on these new methodologies. At the same time, new graduate programs in Applied Linguistics emerged, offering courses in methodology and a practicum component, among others (see Richards 2008). With regard to the focus of second language teacher ... Read More

  • Service-Learning as a Means of Vocabulary Learning for Second Language and
           Heritage Language Learners of Spanish
    • Abstract: Service-Learning (SL) has been defined as an experiential teaching method that combines academic learning with real-world applications (Gascoigne Lally 2001). In practical terms, through participation in SL projects, students address a specific need expressed by a community partner while also working toward their own learning objectives (Barreneche 2011; Gascoigne Lally 2001; Heuser 1999). In the last decades, the application of SL in language courses has increased as the multiple benefits that students reap through their participation have become better understood. Such benefits relate to facets of learning a second language (L2) as well as contributing to learners’ holistic development as ... Read More

  • “Yo pertenezco aquí”: Academic Identities, Formal Spanish, and

    • Abstract: Spanish instructors have long employed great works of theater and poetry to teach both language and culture in their classrooms. The benefits of such study, particularly in terms of theater, have been documented in improved communicative abilities and cultural understanding (Fernández García and Biscu 2005) as well as improved pronunciation and comprehension (Rabell 1977). Other academics have documented the importance of Spanish (Sandoval-Sanchez and Saporta Sternbach 2001) and Spanish-English code-switching (Jonsson 2005, 2010) in the expression of identity in Chicano theater. But little research has been done on the impact that participating in presentations of great plays and poetry in Spanish, as well as the ... Read More

    • Abstract: The power of memory—to reclaim, to alter, to challenge, to reshape—links the present and the past in a continuous cycle of remembering, forgetting and reconstruction. In Sites of Memory in Spain and Latin America: Trauma, Politics, and Resistance, editors Aída Díaz de León, Marina Llorente and Marcella Salvi gather a series of essays that aim to inform the present by reevaluating the past, through the recuperation of historical memory. Building on Pierre Nora’s study of lieux de mémoire as well as Maurice Halbwach’s concept of collective memory, this collection explores the plurality of memory sites and their dynamic connection to the past and the present.

Ketz assemble thirteen essays that provide multiple perspectives on literature produced in Spanish that deal directly with the country’s existential crisis in the twenty-first century, the personification of which has become the bodies of North African migrants. The editors provide a thorough and important historical overview in their introduction; there, they reveal that “18.6 percent of all immigrants in 2008 came from Africa” (4), meaning that in the year marking the apex of movement into the country, the vast majority of newcomers in the first decade of the twentieth ...

A partir del análisis de varios de los personajes y acciones de la novela, Irina Alexandra Feldman nos invita a reformular los conceptos de comunidad, subjetividad política, soberanía, norma jurídica y cambio revolucionario en el contexto de los Andes. La convergencia entre la realidad histórica y la ficción narrativa, no solo nos ayuda a considerar la “Mesa redonda sobre Todas las sangres”, de 1965, desde una perspectiva novedosa, sino que además nos devuelve ...

    • Abstract: José Martí spent the last fifteen years of his life living in the United States, writing and organizing the struggle for Cuban independence. Combining liberally his own observation and information culled from diverse sources, he wrote poetry, chronicles and articles for different newspapers in Latin America. In José Martí, the United States and Race, Anne Fountain, who has written extensively about Jose Martí’s familiarity with American authors, some of whom influenced him, provides a cogent and well-researched argument that Martí’s contact with the diverse nationalities and groups in the United States was pivotal in the development of his ideas on race and his vision of Cuba’s future. His experiences helped ... Read More

    • Abstract: In her new book of dizzying dimensions, Candelas Gala studies a series of artists and writers from twentieth-century Spain who use their creative works as a space to explore their understanding of and struggles with the creative process. Though her analysis is rooted in cognitive science, Gala and the artists she engages view creativity as a manifestation of the dynamic interaction between mind and body. Her book and its method stem from this conviction, linking disparate artists and previously unconnected works of art based on their attempts to integrate and reconcile mind with body, and opening both artist and art object to previously unimagined lines of questioning and interpretation. Gala’s ... Read More

This thoroughly researched, well-crafted study will be of interest to literary and cultural theorists, traductologists, narratologists, and to academic and lay audiences who are passionate about contemporary Latin American fiction. In broad terms, this study is a significant contribution towards a principled poetics of traductology in its encounter with Latin American fiction: through its ... Read More

Una de las particularidades de estos trabajos radica en que están escritos en inglés, lo que permite seguir inscribiendo la propuesta narrativa y poética de Bolaño en el debate literario occidental y mundial. La obra inicia con un prólogo de Siddhartha Deb y una introducción de López-Calvo. Deb se aproxima a los textos de Bolaño con evidente entusiasmo mientras explora aspectos como el trasvase genérico y las relaciones entre arte y política. A su turno, López-Calvo bosqueja una semblanza personal y ... Read More

Mediante el análisis de la producción prosística y poética de Nervo y otros destacados modernistas, respaldada por la minuciosa labor de investigación que Martínez realizó a lo largo de varios años, el libro confirma temas e ideas previamente establecidos por la crítica canónica del modernismo, al tiempo que ofrece nuevas rutas a explorar para la investigación y el debate sobre dicho período.

    • Abstract: Como señala el uso de la puntuación en el título, el concepto de “función” desempeña un papel clave en esta antología escrita por Salvatore Poeta. Al hacer hincapié en el propósito—o sea, en la función—de la forma tradicionalmente poética de la elegía funeral, el autor nos invita a analizar el proceso de construcción de estos textos y la evolución constante de ellos. La función de una elegía poética también revela el lenguaje como proceso y las emociones humanas ante la muerte como algo casi indescriptible. Es claro que los medios textuales que analiza Poeta—como el lenguaje, el sonido (la música) y lo visual (el cine)—son sistemas imperfectos que tratan de expresar la experiencia humana. A lo ...

  • Ventura de la Vega and El hombre de mundo: At the Threshold of the Realist
           Period in Spain by Michael Schinasi (review)
    • Abstract: Traditional literary historiography, with its neatly divided chronological periods and aesthetic classifications, is not kind to transitional figures. At best, they can pass on to posterity as epigones or precursors of a given style. At worst, they simply risk being forgotten under a pile of categories that do not sufficiently apply to them. To a large extent, the latter has been Ventura de la Vega’s fate. His very biography (1807–65) was marked by a state of in-betweeness: born in the soon-to-be independent Buenos Aires, he spent most of his life in Spain; moreover, while lacking any noble origins, he would become secretary of a queen. His literary work, on the other hand, evidences the transition from ... Read More

While the cry may be loudest from schools in urban areas where socioeconomic status, inequities in distribution of resources, and low academic achievement of students affected by such are widespread, contemplation of social justice perspectives and approaches has impacted teacher education reform in all geographic and content areas. Indeed, Osborn’s seminal 2006 volume entitled Teaching World Languages for Social Justice: A Sourcebook of Principles and Practices was one of the first examinations specifically for language teaching and learning, and to that foundation is ...

Her stated desire to break down cultural stereotypes that lump all “Hispanics” into a single group is evident in the structuring of the textbook around individual countries and regions, including the seldom mentioned Equatorial Guinea. Short readings explain cultural practices within those specific countries and the cultural context is often integrated into vocabulary and grammar activities. This emphasis on culture is one ...

The author has provided general background information for each of the songs, as well as some specific language notes for learners of Spanish. Among the songs there are such classics as Gardel’s “Mi Buenos Aires querido” and “El día que me quieras,” Agustín Lara’s “Granada” and Ernesto Lecuona’s “Siboney” (both in Plácido Domingo’s rendition), as well as the birthday standard “Las mañanitas.” Each of the 24 lessons is accompanied by black-and-white photographs ...

It is a revision and update of previous editions, going back to 1998. Beyond the text and notes, the most valuable part of the first volume is the collection of ten probing analyses of foundational topics (1.1349–1642). These alone justify the price of admission. They range widely, from the books of chivalry and the composition of the text to literary theory of that day and even “the narrator” (although the editorial voice is arguably the authoritative presence that staked a claim in 1.8, not the caricature in 1.9). Be that as it may, it is heartening to see the diegetic make ... Read More

En los últimos años, sin embargo, han surgido numerosos estudios académicos, obras de ficción y libros de poesía que reivindican la diáspora judía sefaradí y recuperan la memoria de todo un mundo judío con raíces en España.

Y sin embargo, los treinta y nueve autores incluidos, sin excepciones, son, de hecho, distinguidos miembros de la Real Academia Española o de la Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española (ASALE), o de las dos en la mayoría de los casos.

  • . . . y no se lo tragó la tierra /. . . And the Earth Did Not Devour Him

    • Abstract: . . . y no se lo tragó la tierra, Tomás Rivera’s novel about the Mexican-American farmworker experience, is based much on his own childhood during the 1940s and the 1950s. It is often identified as one of the groundbreaking works of emerging Chicana/o literature that explores ethnic difference and collective identity. Since its original publication in Spanish in 1970, the novel has since been translated by Herminio Ríos C. as . . . and the earth did not devour him (1971), by Rivera’s colleague and close friend Rolando Hinojosa as The Migrant Earth (1987), and also by Evangelina Vigil-Piñon as, again, . . . and the earth did not devour him (Arte Público, 1988).

    • Abstract: 1960. April. Brasilia is inaugurated. It might not be known how long it took to build Rome, but it required only forty-one months to fulfill the more than a century old dream of Brasilia. Juscelino Kubitschek, president of Brazil from 1956 to 1961, was the force behind completing this enterprise. Brasilia stepped into history as the only capital city built in the twentieth century. And a remarkable capital city it was: architecturally modern, carefully planned, centrally located; it exceeded any visions of modernity. The enormity of Brazil was reflected in the enormity of its futuristic capital, a utopia now turned into reality. After the candangos (nickname for the construction workers who built Brasilia) ...
