  • Communicative Learning Outcomes and World Language edTPA: Characteristics
           of High-scoring Portfolios
    • Abstract: The past several de cades of American teacher education reform have highlighted four major questions about teachers: attributes, effectiveness, knowledge, and outcomes (Cochran-Smith 2000). Cochran-Smith (2000) co ntends that many factors helped shape these questions, including the public’s attention to K-12 education and its perceptions of teachers as professionals, the supply of and demand for teachers, and political climate, including state and federal educational funding policies. The most recent focus of teacher educational policy is the Outcomes question, which addresses “teacher learning, professional practice, and student learning” by asking “how, by whom, and for what purposes should these outcomes be ...

  • Who Needs Linguistics' Service-Learning and Linguistics for Spanish
           Heritage Language Learners
    • Abstract: Service-Learning (SL) is an educational approach that integrates students’ experiential learning and development of civic responsibility through community involvement with service that meets the needs of that community. Service-Learning in higher education is a balancing act that requires the “collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity” (Saltmarsh and Driscoll 2012). Waterman (2013) summarizes the benefits derived from SL activities under four broad categories: enhancement of learning material, promoting personal development ... Read More

  • Two Birds, One Stone, or How Learning a Foreign Language Makes You a
           Better Language Learner
    • Abstract: This study aims to contribute to our understanding of the advantages of having studied a second language (L2) on the learning of a third or subsequent language (L3). More specifically, we investigate the effects of formal classroom L2 exposure on additional language learning.1 Results from a growing line of research on L3 learning suggest that prior linguistic experience provides bilinguals with cognitive advantages that facilitate additional language learning. These results have been reported in laboratory studies (e.g., Nayak, Hansen, Krueger, and McLaughlin 1990), in bilingual education programs in bilingual communities (e.g., Sanz 2000), and in research involving immigrant populations (e.g., Clyne, Rossi Hunt ...

  • Pastiche, parodia e ironía en La verdad sobre el caso Savolta de
           Eduardo Mendoza
    • Abstract: Amenudo la crítica literaria ha puesto de manifiesto el carácter innovador y posmodernista de La verdad del caso Savolta (1975) cuya difusión marcó un hito en la corriente novelística española de los años setenta. Sin embargo, no por ello, pudo escapar la censura franquista que la calificó de “un novelón estúpido y confuso” y que obligó al autor a cambiar su título original de “Los soldados de Cataluña” al que la ha hecho famosa. La censura intuía en su título original cierta apología al independentismo, intención cuanto más alejada de la realidad y del verdadero propósito del autor, ya que este quería decir que “los soldados de Cataluña eran estafadores”. Finalmente, con la ayuda de Pere Gimferrer, surgió el ... Read More

    • Abstract: To me, the latent, tacit culture was clearly the real one, whereas the manifest culture, like the persona of the Greek actor, was simply a mask, a carved and painted thing, an artifice created to fit a particular culturally defined status or situational behavior.Undergraduate survey courses in Latin American literature, history, or cultural studies oftentimes include some of the first chapters from Octavio Paz’s El laberinto de la soledad. The 1950 text, which is a potent mix of philosophical, literary, historical, and psychological ruminations about the Mexican ‘character,’ seems almost ready-made for any number of classes on Latin America. While the text’s prose is plainspoken enough that undergraduates can mull ... Read More

  • Los dominios de la seducción: Dos aproximaciones teatrales de María
           Luisa Medina a Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
    • Abstract: Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz constituyó para sus contemporáneos un mito del que ella misma era consciente y, a veces, se lamentaba, tal como nos muestra en sus célebres versos: “Y diversa de mí misma / entre vuestras plumas ando, / no como soy, sino como / quisisteis imaginarlo” (Cruz, Obras 73 [vv. 17–20]).1 Los siglos transcurridos, no sólo no han erosionado el mito sino que lo han fortalecido, siendo incontables las representaciones culturales y los estudios académicos que han surgido sobre la poeta novohispana y su obra, borrándose incluso las fronteras entre la realidad y la ficción, el ensayo erudito y el relato biográfico. De este modo, sus escritos han sido situados como hito dentro del discurso protofeminista ... Read More

  • Mirta Yáñez’s Dystopic Vision of Havana
    • Abstract: In her 2010 novel Sangra por la herida, winner of the Cuban Critic’s Prize, the Cuban novelist, poet, and essayist Mirta Yáñez records the failures of the 1960s utopian revolutionary dream by portraying the disintegration of the city of Havana’s social fabric. A writer of the generation that came of age during the 1960s, Yáñez started publishing in the 1970s, often depicting the revolutionary fervor of city dwellers over the next several decades.1 This novel concentrates on the years of hardship that ensued as the result of the withdrawal of economic subsidies by the Soviet Union, described by Fidel Castro as “el período especial.” In the novel, Yáñez records the memories of several university students who lived to ...

  • Straight or Curly' Hair and Race in Carmen Montañez’s Pelo
           bueno, pelo malo
    • Abstract: Many women enjoy going to the beauty salon to get their hair done and pamper themselves. However, the ways in which women manage their hair impact their daily life since, as a body part, their hair is suited to personal preferences and also susceptible to being “read” and interpreted by others (Weitz 667; Prince 14). Located between the public and private sphere, hair is, according to Antony Synnott, one of the most powerful symbols of individual and group identity (103). The symbolic importance of women’s hair gets complicated by the element of race, for racialized beauty standards make hair texture and hairstyles an essential part of black female identity (Robinson 360). For most Afro-descendant women, their hair ... Read More

La cuestión del tipo de vínculo existente entre el duelo, el lenguaje y la música constituye para Benjamin el núcleo de la problemática estética que diferencia a los distintos tipos de ... Read More

  • No tempo de Zicartola: Locating Cultural Mediation and Social Change,
           1963–65
    • Abstract: Zicartola was a restaurant and bar in early 1960s Rio de Janeiro where like-minded artists and fans congregated to socialize, network, and collaborate with one another. Operating for two short years between 1963 and 1965 on the upper floor of an old colonial building at Rua da Carioca, 53, the eponymous Zicartola combined the names of owners Cartola, a respected older samba composer and musician, and his common-law wife Dona Zica. This period also marked a dramatic transformation in Brazilian socio-political life, most notably given social unrest of the early 1960s, the coup d’état that took place in April 1964, and the subsequent military dictatorship that would hold power until 1985. Through an examination of ... Read More

Se trata de la época de las vanguardias durante los años veinte y treinta del siglo XX. A pesar de las declaraciones del mismo Macedonio expresando su indiferencia hacia los nuevos principios vanguardistas, podemos comprobar que fue uno de los escritores más insólitos. Como afirma Robert Wells, Macedonio se sitúa estratégicamente en la periferia de la periferia, llevando a extremos su propuesta de romper totalmente con las bases estructurales de las formas de escritura tradicional, así como su concepto revolucionario y subversivo de la metafísica y la filosofía en ...

    • Abstract: One of Spain’s contemporary writers most tapped into popular culture and current events that affect social change, Lucía Etxebarria (1966–) deserves more scholarly attention. Catherine Bourland Ross’s recent book, The Changing Face of Motherhood in Spain: The Social Construction of Maternity in the Works of Lucía Etxebarria, offers an in-depth analysis into the life and works of Extebarria from the specific lens of motherhood.Bourland Ross begins the book with a courageous preface in which she states that personal experience encouraged her to understand that motherhood is a plurality of experiences that challenge—and sometimes accept—traditional ideas of maternity. The author thoughtfully outlines the complicated ... Read More

Como señala la editora y coordinadora Pura Fernández en el prólogo, estas fechas coinciden con la formación de los nuevos países latinoamericanos y la construcción del Estado liberal español hasta la Guerra Civil, “que marcó una dinámica nueva en los flujos y contactos culturales transatlánticos por la diáspora republicana” (13).Si bien los diecisiete ensayos parten de variados planteamientos teóricos e incluyen una extensa nómina de autoras, la cohesión se logra a partir de una ...

Groundbreaking films such as Ripstein’s El lugar sin límites (1977), Bemberg’s Señora de nadie (1982), and Hermosillo’s Doña Herlinda y su hijo (1985), as well as more contemporary works like Hernández’s Mil nubes de paz cercan el cielo (2004), Berneri’s Un año sin amor (2005), and Puenzo’s XXY (2007) have deservedly sparked the interest of audiences, scholars, and artists beyond the borders of the countries ...

Sin contar con el presente título, Lima ha escrito siete libros sobre este escritor gallego y ha traducido dos de sus obras: un tratado estético-místico y una selección de dramas breves. Sin embargo, esta vez Lima se desvía del análisis literario para ofrecer a los lectores un libro más liviano sobre el escritor gallego.

Each part contains four chapters, and all of them present quantitative analyses of SPE.In the preface, Ricardo Otheguy sketches the ground-laying work of early variationist sociolinguists, which sets the stage for quantitative-variationist studies of subject personal pronouns (SPPs) by Spanish pronombristas.

At the center of the memoir is the narrator’s deep desire to understand himself. This self-search however is deeply intertwined by the abuse the narrator suffered as a child and by his broken relationship with his father. Muñoz was born in Cuba in 1954, and emigrated with his parents to the United States when he was fourteen years old. Like many of his Cuban American writer peers who came over during adolescence, his writing shares a sensibility based on the division or rupture with a childhood that took place in a different ...

It is also a valuable addition to courses on the twentieth-century novel as a cherished modern classic from Latin America.When evaluating translations, it is important to avoid the native language reader’s instinct: to expect a translation to replicate and contain its source. Ancient Tillage and Lavoura arcaica obviously cannot be the same book. Differences between them are not mistakes and pointing to them as inaccuracies in a condescending manner is unfair. The ...

  • Cinco esquinas by Mario Vargas Llosa (review)
    • Abstract: In his latest novel, Cinco esquinas, Vargas Llosa tells the parallel stories of two urban upper-class couples and that of a pauperized artist in Lima. Marisa and Chabela are married, respectively, to Enrique and Luciano, two successful professionals.
