  • The Long Goodbye
    • Abstract: Serving as Editor of Hispania for over eight years has been an unparalleled academic honor. As a teacher, researcher, and life-long learner, I have gained knowledge about countless matters in our fields because of the journal’s broad scope. Editing Hispania demands abundant reading and has provided a bird’s eye view of our changing discipline. This rich intellectual experience will serve me well as I begin my next professional challenge.It has been a privilege to serve as the gatekeeper of Hispania and to curate the work of the talented professionals who send their manuscripts to the journal for consideration for publication. There are, of course, many seasoned professionals who publish in the journal. Hispania is ... Read More

  • Hispania: An Iberian Union for the New Millennium
    • Abstract: “Hispania is here! Hispania!” I would say to myself in my Peggy Hill Spanish, thrilled as Christmas morning to find the thick, glossy volume lying in a pile of bills at the end of a long day at work with the students at the Georgia high school where I taught for five years.1 The journal was always a way to stay connected to the greater world and big ideas. Today, I teach Spanish language and Latin American literature centered on the African Diaspora at a research university, but it is still a way to get out of my professional bubble and learn from Peninsularists, linguists, pedagogues, and the many kinds of teachers that make up our diverse organization.I would like to reflect on some of the past meanings of ...

  • For US Students, L2 Reading Comprehension is Hard Because L2 Listening
           Comprehension is Hard, Too
    • Abstract: Reading comprehension in one’s native language (L1) and in a foreign language (L2) requires the use of a wide variety of linguistic and metalinguistic skills. Although there are differences between learning to read a L1 and a L2, researchers have proposed that L2 reading may be similar to L1 reading in alphabetic languages (Proctor, Carlo, August, and Snow 2005; Verhoeven and van Leeuwe 2012). In L1 reading research, the Simple View of Reading (SVR) model (Gough and Tunmer 1986; Hoover and Gough 1990) was initially proposed to explain an approach for tracking the developmental progression of primary level Spanish-English bilingual students living in the United States through the upper elementary grades. The SVR ... Read More

  • Understanding the Spelling Errors of Spanish Heritage Language Learners
    • Abstract: Despite the fact that spelling is a literacy aspect in which Spanish heritage language learners (HLs) experience significant difficulties, the development of spelling proficiency has not received much attention in HL research, with the notable exception of Beaudrie’s (2012) corpus-based description of the typical orthographic errors of HLs. The lack of research in this aspect of HLs’ development is unfortunate for several reasons. As Carreira (2002) explains, poor spelling adversely affects HLs’ chances to be hired for jobs that use Spanish professionally, such as in translation, media, or marketing. In addition, because little is known about how spelling skills are developed in this population, instructors of HL ... Read More

  • Technology in the Spanish Heritage Language Classroom: Can
           Computer-Assisted Language Learning Help'
    • Abstract: While there is a considerable amount of research on the use and application of technology in the second language (L2) classroom, the field of Spanish as a heritage language (SHL) teaching and learning has so far lacked this focus. Blake (2013) argued that technology could be the source of very valuable L2 input, key in the L2 acquisition process; how then can technology help the Spanish heritage language learner' As a source of input, SHL learners could amply benefit from technology, since they could be exposed to other forms and varieties of the language they have used mainly with their families and in their communities. In addition, SHL learners could potentially boost and improve those skills in which they are ... Read More

    • Abstract: Apesar da agilidade no escâmbio de informação com o advento da comunicação digital, o ensino de Português como Língua Estrangeira (PLE) ainda não balanceia todas as suas vozes no exterior. O crescimento na demanda de cursos poderia sinalizar a necessidade de um acesso mais fácil e uma gama de inserção educacional maior nos livros adotados do que realmente se vê, por exemplo, no mercado editorial dos Estados Unidos (Batoréo 2014; Bateman 2014; Jouët-Pastré 2011).Em alguns materiais didáticos para PLE e conteúdos culturais do mundo lusófono, é raro encontrar um balanço na carga informacional entre Portugal, Brasil, Angola, Moçambique, Cabo Verde, Timor-Leste, São Tomé e Príncipe, e Guiné Bissau e Guiné Equatorial; ...

  • Intercultural Contact in Short-term Study Abroad Programs
    • Abstract: Study abroad (SA) is a central component of the internationalization movement of college curricula in the United States (Watson, Siska, and Wolfel 2013), and it represents the primary tool for the development of global, international, and intercultural competencies among students in post-secondary settings in this country (Soria and Troisi 2014). According to NAFSA (the National Association of Foreign Student Advisors), more than 300,000 US students participated in study abroad programs in 2013–14, which represented a 5% increase from the previous year (NAFSA 2016). Most of these students (62%) were part of short-term SA programs (lasting up to eight weeks; Institute of International Education 2016), and about half ... Read More

  • Aspiración rasgada: Representación del habla de la calle en el cine
           realista de España
    • Abstract: “A mi parecer, el cine será, ante todo, testimonio, o no será nada”El cine ofrece material de interés para los estudios sociolingüísticos (véase Abecassis) a pesar de que, con relativa frecuencia, los realizadores cinematográficos confían en intuiciones, más que en investigación sociolingüística (Murphy 266). En el presente trabajo se analiza la representación del sociolecto de clase obrera en el cine social, esto es, se intenta analizar la capacidad del texto fílmico como fuente de datos para una etnografía de la comunicación válida y sensible al contexto social en el que se inscribe (Hymes 155). La tesis inicial, en línea con el debate sobre la identidad global o local del cine español (Kinder, Blood Cinema; Pohl ... Read More

  • Spanish Comics as Genre
    • Abstract: There is no such thing as a graphic novel. That is to say, this is terminology that we have appropriated as academics for use to justify our studies and that publishers use to sell silly little picture books to adults. Indeed, “comics” is not a perfect term to use, but there will never be a perfect term to encompass a genre. However, attempting to reflect the entire genre with the term “graphic novel” is endeavoring to narrow its definition and its canon. By differentiating between “graphic novels” and “comics,” academics are attempting to define what is acceptable as Literature. Although, in all honesty, the older generation of academics still cling to the belief that anything with pictures will never be ... Read More

  • Photography and Neobaroque Imaginary in Julio Cortázar’s “Las babas
           del diablo”: Can the Neobaroque Name a Photograph'
    • Abstract: Julio Cortázar’s story “Las babas del diablo” does the unimaginable: it inverts the order between a photograph and its photographer in such a way that the photographer’s reality is now stilled, while that of the photograph is moving. This inversion, first, seems to rise out of the photographer’s unordinary engagement with the picture he has taken. After an intense interaction with the photograph, Michel, the photographer protagonist, starts noticing movements in the picture and eventually finds himself paralyzed in front of the moving image. Secondly, the mentioned inversion finds ground in Michel’s Neobaroque spirit both as a narrator and a photographer. Not only is Michel a Neobaroque character through his ... Read More

  • Lucrecia’s Role as a Classical Nursemaid in Celestina
    • Abstract: Dedicated to Emilie BergmannFernando de Rojas’s fifteenth-century masterpiece, Celestina, is a dialogic polyphony that blends into an aggregate of words, thoughts, and opinions expressed through human interactions anchored in dialogue. This symphonic compound of discourses enables the tragedy to move forth to its natural conclusion. When analyzing Celestina’s complex interactions between characters and their voices, as Katherine Eaton notes, scholars tend to overlook Lucrecia’s character. Although Katherine Swietlicki asserts that Lucrecia is “the least forceful of Rojas’s feminine characters” (6), Lucrecia has a preponderant role in Melibea’s life, and she is an essential catalyst in the configuration of the ...

           Óscar Muñoz (review)
    • Abstract: Willy Óscar Muñoz has published widely about Latin American literature and theater, particularly on works produced by women in his native Bolivia. Territorios, razas y etnias en la novela boliviana forms part of a larger systematic study of classical Bolivian novels. This book offers a critical study of a number of major and less well-known novels, arranged chronologically, from Wata Wara (1904) by Alcides Arguedas to Yanakuna (1952) by Jesús Lara. During the first half of the twentieth century, Bolivia’s vast and varied regions were mostly traversed by mule or horseback. Bolivia’s ethnic and cultural variability is well represented in Muñoz’s selections. These two conditions—environmental and cultural ... Read More

Nichols examina las instancias de enculturación de las normas de apariencia y urbanidad en Venezuela desde 1850 hasta 2015, y advierte que el carácter moral y el éxito de la mujer venezolana han estado intrínsecamente ligados a las pautas de belleza y al recato. Es admirable la facilidad con la que la autora examina obras literarias, archivos, anuncios publicitarios y películas, y entreteje en su análisis historias de éxitos personales, procesos de mercadeo y políticas estatales. El ambicioso abarque histórico y textual del estudio hace posible una lúcida propuesta del perfil identitario national que responde a procesos socioculturales a lo ... Read More

Es por ello que hay que subrayar otro acierto académico tras la carátula de una de las publicaciones más recientes de la Universidad de Murcia; por este medio, se vuelve a encarar la obra de dos escritores cubanos que, a pesar de los años, siguen acaparando la atención de los críticos literarios.En efecto, el texto que ocupa esta recensión, Interrogando imágenes, de la profesora húngara Mercedes Kutasy, lleva ...

The target audience of the book is undergraduate students in Hispanic Linguistics in the United States; however, the book can also be used to teach native speakers.

A maioria das publicações que exploram este tema se dedica à situação nas escolas públicas. Em comparação, o livro de Ana Souza explora não só o português na escola, como também a presença da língua de herança nos domicílios e na igreja. Poucas publicações conseguem dar aos leitores uma visão integrada destes três ambientes sociolinguísticos.É importante salientar que Souza é também a organizadora desta coletânea. Cada uma das três seções do livro começa com uma apresentação escrita por um especialista no campo de pesquisa do português. No ... Read More

    • Abstract: Una de las corrientes más destacadas de los estudios culturales ibéricos del siglo veintiuno recupera el análisis de la ciudad contemporánea. Aunque más que ciudad, lo que analiza esta corriente es lo urbano, puesto que hablar de ciudad no implica necesariamente el abordaje de los procesos urbanos. Así, desde la perspectiva del teórico del espacio Henri Lefebvre, las estructuras materiales de la ciudad—su medio ambiente edificado—son a lo urbano lo que el casco duro del caracol es a su organismo. Lo urbano es espontaneidad, movimiento, vida, transformación. La ciudad es materia muerta, edificada en algún momento histórico para apoyar ciertos intereses. Según Lefebvre estos intereses son los de una clase ... Read More

    • Abstract: Advances in Spanish as a Heritage Language is a pioneering work because it brings together linguistic and educational studies, perspectives, methodologies and debates, in an effort to find connections among these fields and thus better serve the academic community devoted to the study of heritage languages. This work gives a unique chance for both beginner and experienced scholars in various disciplines to get an objective and thorough review of the current state of Spanish, the heritage language par excellence in the United States. One major advantage is that the findings of this work can also be applied to other heritage languages in the world, for example to Polish in the United Kingdom or to Turkish in Germany. ... Read More

    • Abstract: “Desaprendía ese pasado, me desprendía de él metódicamente. Al no lograr ordenarlo, ubicarlo, situarlo en perspectiva, en un relato que lo habría hecho habitable, necesitaba olvidarlo para conseguir vivir. O sobrevivir, o revivir: dejo al lector la elección del verbo” (68). Esta cita sintetiza el pensamiento de Jorge Semprún (Madrid, 1923–París, 2011), el cual aseguraba con sólida convicción poética haber atravesado la muerte durante su reclusión en el campo de concentración de Buchenwald. Tomada en conjunto, su literatura es testimonio oblicuo pero incisivo del recorrido mortal que finalmente se afirma en la vida, y como vida. Desde su primer libro, El largo viaje (1963), y con sus otras obras, como la sublime La ... Read More

Patrick Dove analiza una serie de novelas latinoamericanas que pueden ser consideradas respuestas literarias a los procesos neoliberales que impusieron un sistema globalizado en Latinoamérica. Dicho de otra manera, esta ambiciosa investigación busca dar cuenta del impacto que tuvo la globalización neoliberal, cuyos efectos son tan amplios y variados que trascienden la esfera de lo económico para imponerse como reguladora de la sociedad, la política y la ...

    • Abstract: This biographical and literary study is an updated, and much expanded, version of a book first published in 2005 by the Society of Spanish and Spanish-American Studies, and has debts to the author’s Cela: Masculino singular (1991). In this version, titled Cela: Retrato de un Nobel, the author acknowledges it is sometimes difficult to separate the author and his work, yet in general terms somewhat more than the first half of the book (pp. 19–386) centers on the biography, and the rest on the study of the work. In this second part, García Marquina features his own views while dialoguing with the most important secondary literature on Cela’s production.Important about this heavily–end-noted work is that it was written ...

  • Finding Altamira dir. by Hugh Hudson (review)
    • Abstract: In 1879, Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola proclaimed that he and his daughter had discovered the rock art in the Altamira Cave, Cantabria. Actually, the cave had already been discovered in 1868 by a sharecropper on Sanz de Sautuola’s estate, Modesto Cubillas, while searching for his dog. In July 2014, Antonio Banderas expressed his enthusiasm about working on a film in Spain in the near future. It was to be a movie about the discovery of the Altamira rock art. Released in 2016, Finding Altamira has an international cast, with music composed by Mark Knopfler. Banderas portrays Sanz de Sautuola himself. The director is Hugh Hudson, known for his previous works Chariots of Fire (1981), Greystoke (1984), and Revolution ... Read More

    • Abstract: Las culturas y civilizaciones latinoamericas is not merely intended to present the historical material that may be found in other textbooks of its kind, but to engage students and encourage them to go beyond the knowledge acquired from reading its pages. Unlike many of the standard Latin American culture and civilization textbooks, Merrell and DePaoli’s was written to challenge students by foregoing a few editorial conventions and, at times, drawing unexpected conclusions. For example, there is no index: after an ample glossary, lists of films and videos, and the bibliography titled “Para aprender más,” the reader arrives at the back cover of the book. There are no graphs, maps, tables, or illustrations, either. ... Read More

Given her project’s wide chronological scope, Martuscelli wisely chooses to focus on discrete examples or moments of Luso-Brazilian contact, addressing topics such as nineteenth-century Portuguese novelist Eça de Queirós’s not uncontroversial reception in Brazil, the transatlantic Luso-Brazilian journals that flourished at the fin de siècle, and the contacts maintained between Portuguese and Brazilian modernists beginning in the 1910s. ...

    • Abstract: Judy Hochberg’s delightful new book ¿Por qué' 101 Questions about Spanish, published in 2016 by Bloomsbury Academic, is an engrossing and meticulously researched 326-page book that will be a joy to read for any Spanish linguistics teacher, general linguist, Spanish speaker, or any person curious about how language (and Spanish in particular) functions. David Crystal has called ¿Por qué' 101 Questions about Spanish “a masterclass in linguistic exposition.”Hochberg, a professor at Fordham, claims that she wrote the book to “synthesize and share the most interesting things” (xxi) she has learned as a student, linguistics researcher and Spanish teacher. She (and with her, many of us) wishes she could have read a volume ... Read More

El análisis espacial ha sido destacado en un reciente estudio del distinguido académico David William Foster y esto ha desatado un mayor interés académico en esta obra considerada como la primera novela proletaria brasileña; una novela de estructura modernista por su fragmentación y lenguaje coloquial que es prácticamente desconocida en Hispanoamérica, ya que no había sido traducida al castellano.

Su fecunda obra, que, en algunos casos, se ha tratado con condescendencia por el canon literario y la alta cultura, sin embargo, afianza el interés por la novela romántica más allá del marco literario hispano. Con un legado que abarca más de cuatro mil ejemplares, sus obras muestran la novela rosa como una manifestación cultural y literaria del mundo femenino de la España del siglo XX, tal y como se refleja en El ...

    • Abstract: Within the first paragraph of their concise and yet provocative Receptions of the Classics in the African Diaspora of the Hispanophone and Lusophone Worlds: Atlantis Otherwise, Elisa Rizo and Madeleine M. Henry re-define the Atlantis of their title: for them, it “signif[ies] the array of identities that emerged from the contact between Africa, Europe, and the Americas . . . identities that have often remained obscured, silenced and/or dismissed by dominant Eurocentric paradigms” (1). The writings here interrogate the interpretation of classical texts within the African diaspora, taking into account the specificities of each site and examining how the authors within these Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries ...
