  • The Infinite Possibilities of Language
    • Abstract: This issue of Hispania calls attention to the endless richness of linguistic expression in the media and in general. Associate Editor of Hispania Dr. Francisco M. Carriscondo-Esquivel (see bio below) penned the featured essay on the Proyecto Lengua y Prensa. Created and hosted at the Universidad de Málaga (Spain), Proyecto Lengua y Prensa is a free virtual archive of articles in which the Spanish language is center stage. The growing collection of news articles focuses on the Spanish language—and its many varieties—and the coexistence of languages on the Iberian Peninsula. Archived are articles on topics like linguistic sexism, immigration, and linguistic manipulation, among many others. After you read the essay in ... Read More

  • La lengua como noticia
    • Abstract: Hispania celebra su primer centenario (y estoy seguro de que no será el único, pues no podemos prescindir de las publicaciones monumentales). Semejante acontecimiento dentro del mundo de la cultura hispánica y portuguesa, sobre todo en sus manifestaciones lingüísticas y literarias, no deberían los medios pasarlo por alto. Pero ya sabemos que estos atienden más a la inmediatez de los hechos y aparcan lo que de verdad deja un poso, una vez asentado. Con todo, no descarto que haya una cadena de televisión, un periódico o una emisora de radio que se haga eco de tan importante efeméride, rara avis que a veces se desliza por lecturas, audiciones o visionados tan efímeros (y no digamos ya los que brindan los medios ...

  • Tempo e escrita de memória: Reflexões sobre intenção, consciência e
           
    • Abstract: Odiário e o livro de memórias, apesar de lidarem ambos com a rememoração, apresentam distintas peculiaridades em termos de representação e apreciação do tempo, tendo, o primeiro, um aspeto mais dinâmico, de expetativa de continuidade e, à vez, de suspense. O segundo é mais estático, um terreno conhecido, de acontecimentos conclusos; um tempo, via de regra, já não mais retomado na esfera da ação, alterado apenas pelo estado de espírito do eu que relembra agora O diário, por sua vez, representa um tempo presente, de futuro imprevisível, e pressupõe um narrador que conhece tanto quanto o leitor: alguém incapaz de assumir verdades futuras, e cuja opinião e estado de espírito podem mudar continuamente com o passar do ...

  • América ¿The Beautiful' Ecología, evolución y caos: Otras lentes
           para otras consideraciones de Poeta en Nueva York
    • Abstract: Podría pensarse que Federico García Lorca (1898–1936) escribió Poeta en Nueva York (1940) como contrapartida a la patriótica canción "America the Beautiful" [América, la bella], pues nada de los "spacious skies", de los campos llenos de "amber waves of grain", de las majestuosas montañas "above the fruited plain" aparece en su libro. Dios no derramó su gracia sobre la América que vio el poeta, ni tampoco la coronó de bondad y hermandad, como dice la canción. Y seguramente desde nuestra perspectiva actual estaríamos de acuerdo con García Lorca, teniendo en cuenta la serie de desastres ecológicos que han estado ocurriendo y los frecuentes informes sobre la basura tóxica, la lluvia ácida o el proceso de fractura ...

  • El concepto de heterotopías de Michel Foucault en dos novelas de Mario
           Bellatin: Salón de belleza y Damas chinas
    • Abstract: Una visión compartida por la crítica de la narrativa posmoderna hispana sugiere que existen semejanzas entre los personajes literarios de Franz Kafka y los protagonistas de las novelas de Mario Bellatin. En el universo kafkiano la enajenación del individuo se debe a la dificultad de formar relaciones profundas con los demás seres humanos en una sociedad burguesa marcada por la deshumanización y la dilogía en cuanto a la movilidad social (aspectos resultantes de la modernidad). No obstante, en la obra de Bellatin los personajes literarios presentan un conflicto interior como resultado del aislamiento del ser debido a su propia incompletitud y discontinuidad, articulándose la sintomatología del individuo posmodermo ...

  • Rescuing Red Riding Hood: Carmen Martín Gaite's Caperucita en
           Manhattan
    • Abstract: Carmen Martín Gaite (1925–2000) is the most-studied woman writer of contemporary Spain, as documented by the MLA Bibliography. In the years since her passing, Martín Gaite has received even more attention than she enjoyed while she was alive. Her legacy has been the subject of conferences, books, journals, and articles.1 New critical appraisals have begun to break down rigid genre categories into which her fiction has been classified—categories that the author herself tried to surmount. This essay proposes a new look at an exceptional novel that, I believe, has been widely overlooked because of misclassification. Caperucita en Manhattan (1990) is treasured around the world.

  • Literary Crossover in the Domingo del Monte Tertulia: Anselmo Suárez y
           Romero's and Cirilo Villaverde's C. Valdés Protagonists
    • Abstract: For those well acquainted with Cuban antislavery narrative, the story is a familiar one. In the outskirts of Havana, a young, racially ambiguous girl is orphaned at birth and raised by a caring elderly woman. The motherless mulata grows up and is engaged when her betrothed dies unexpectedly, a death followed shortly by her own. The aforementioned summary, for many, is seemingly recognizable, but it is not that of Cirilo Villaverde's foundational novel Cecilia Valdés, published in 1882. Instead, the summary represents the work of another Cuban writer of the early 1800s, Anselmo Suárez y Romero, and the title is not Cecilia Valdés, but "Carlota Valdés," published in 1838. The work posthumously traces the life of the ... Read More

  • Rio de Janeiro to Claremont: Promoting Intercultural Competence Through
           Student-driven Online Intercultural Exchanges
    • Abstract: When Pitzer College set out to develop a new Portuguese program, one of its goals was to incorporate as much as possible of the model and objectives of the community-based approach to teaching language that it has been developing and perfecting in its Spanish program over the last fifteen years.1 Pitzer College's Spanish program is based on the concept of language as a social practice; its core has been engagement with local Spanish-speaking communities. The program is designed to develop fluency in the language while promoting intercultural competence. Local Hispanic host families receive students into their homes once a week for discussion, participation in family activities, and exploration of the community. ... Read More

  • Second Language Acquisition of Spanish Service Industry Requests in an
           Immersion Context
    • Abstract: Pragmatic competence encompasses the knowledge of pragmalinguistic resources and the sociopragmatic application of those resources to second language contexts (Barron 2003). Pragmalingustic resources relate to the structures available in a language to communicate a specific function, and sociopragmatics relates to the social contexts in which a speech act may be performed (Leech 1983). The present study examines the extent to which English-speaking learners of Spanish develop pragmalinguistic resources to make requests in Spanish and the sociopragmatic application of request strategies during a six-week program abroad in Madrid, Spain. While some studies have addressed learning during short-term immersion programs ... Read More

  • Heritage Language Learners in Mixed Spanish Classes: Subtractive Practices
           and Perceptions of High School Spanish Teachers
    • Abstract: Perhaps now more than ever the visibility and prominence of the Latino population has emerged in the United States. Latinos are currently the largest and one of the fastest growing minority groups in the country, attributable to such factors as high immigration and birth rates and the relative youth of this population group, especially during the 1990s and early 2000s (Rong and Preissle 2009). In 2015, the Latino population reached 57 million, accounting for more than half of the national growth since 2000 (Krogstad 2016). These changing demographics will continue to have an immediate influence on the way that researchers approach the field of education, as classroom populations and student needs across the nation ...

  • Balancing Direction and Independence in Second Language Vocabulary
           Learning: A Gesture Pilot Study
    • Abstract: One of the best indicators of language fluency is vocabulary, and it is also a good predictor of literacy and reading comprehension (de Groot and van Hell 2005). In the second language classroom, instruction includes formal vocabulary learning, wherein textbooks provide lists of target words, often organized in thematic sets (Boyd Zimmerman 1997; Nation 2000). Students favor shallow repetition (Lawson and Hogben 1996; Schmitt 2008), while studies suggest that techniques to increase the complexity of connections between the first language (L1) and the second language (L2) result in better recall (Ellis and Beaton 1993; Grabe and Stoller 1997). Though second language vocabulary instruction has been historically under ... Read More

Many are already familiar with Bosi's original publication. As such, I will not detail individual chapters, but will briefly describe the book's structure and central concepts, with commentary on the exceptional work of Robert Patrick Newcomb as its translator.Bosi's study is divided into ten primary chapters that are preceded by an acknowledgments page and an "Author's Note to the North American Edition," originally presented at the University of São Paulo in 2007 and previously published in Colony, Cult, and Culture (2008).

  • Reading Junot Díaz by Christopher González (review)
    • Abstract: In Reading Junot Díaz, the first book-length study of the highly-acclaimed Latino author, Christopher González analyzes Díaz's fiction to argue two interrelated yet salient points: just as Díaz's fiction has, in many ways, redefined contemporary Latino literature, González's analytical approach signals a departure from ideologically-oriented scholarship. The four chapters of González's study elucidate the unique literary qualities of Díaz's writing, particularly generic experimentation and the role of character narrators. Although Reading Junot Díaz examines narrative elements, its organization is essentially thematic. The focus on content creates a slight dissonance with the study's proposal to highlight literary ...

  • Striking Their Modern Pose: Fashion, Gender, and Modernity in Galdós,
           Pardo Bazán, and Picón by Dorota Heneghan (review)
    • Abstract: Striking Their Modern Pose represents the first in-depth exploration of how attention to the representation of fashion and fashionable dress helps us to understand the thinking of Benito Pérez Galdós, Emilia Pardo Bazán, and Jacinto Octavio Picón about the role played by changing gender norms in Spanish modernity. Those interested in the portrayal of the intricate details of fashion in late nineteenth-century Spain will not be surprised that Heneghan has dedicated a chapter to Picón's Dulce y sabrosa (1891), a novel in which fashionable dress plays a crucial role in the plot. Specialists in Galdós or Pardo Bazán may be pleasantly surprised to find that Heneghan has chosen to examine less obvious texts by these ... Read More

  • Impossible Returns: Narratives of the Cuban Diaspora by Iraida H.
           López (review)
    • Abstract: This timely and well-researched study comes at a moment of great historical changes for Cubans both inside and outside the island. Stories of diasporas are always complex and often focus on traumatic events of deterritorialization and reterritorialization. One characteristic of diasporic discourse is its tendency to place itself simultaneously in the threshold of the past and the present, in a Janus-like fashion evoking the Roman god who faces two ways. The literature of the Cuban diaspora is no exception.According to López, the return motif shapes the artistic production of the one-and-a-half generation children or adolescents born in Cuba who had reached adulthood in the United States. Her book "attempts to ... Read More

The collection begins with an introduction by Ribas-Casasayas and Petersen that establishes a lucid and ... Read More

Dicha presencia constituye un referente importante para la educación en la tradición literaria española del pintor malagueño, sin dejar de ser también una figura arquetipo de resonancia universal, que el pintor incluye en sus obras de manera independiente a su integración en el argumento de la obra literaria en la que se inscribe: "For Picasso the narrative is of secondary importance to the characterization of Celestina: her machinations and matchmaking held his ...

The study is a collection of essays put together by Akiko Tsuchiya and William G. Acree Jr. These essays, presenting varying viewpoints and expertise about the topic, are divided into the following categories: racial theory, Atlantic cartographers, slavery, empire and the problem of freedom, and cultural legacies of the empire. Through these categories, the study discusses different visions concerning relationships between disciplinary boundaries and the character and extent of cultural history. This well-written book provides an explanation of the so-called end of the Spanish Empire ... Read More

  • To the Right of the Verb: An Investigation of Clitic Doubling and Right
           Dislocation in Three Spanish Dialects by Valeria A. Belloro (review)
    • Abstract: To the Right of the Verb draws from pragmatics, corpus linguistics, psycholinguistics, and syntax to build an empirically based account of clitic doubling and right dislocation in contemporary Argentine, Mexican, and Peninsular Spanish. While these syntactic phenomena have been addressed in both theoretical (Chafe, Lambrecht, Suñer) and corpus studies (Silva-Corvalán, Weissenrieder), Belloro's approach builds upon prior research in two ways: 1) by considering data from three dialects in order to control for and document dialectical change; and 2) by arguing that cognitive accessibility drives the observed variation. While the book draws from Lambrecht's work on identifiability to provide a detailed taxonomy of ... Read More

The debut fictional biography by director Daniel Augusto, this film features brothers Júlio and Ravel Andrade portraying three different eras in the author's life, pieced together into a chronological kaleidoscope. The plot switches between Paulo's troubled youth in the 1960s, his rebellious years in the 1970s and 80s and his reflective later life as a successful author of international acclaim. While the film has some artistic flaws that might limit its usefulness in the second-language classroom, it still tells a story ... Read More

    • Abstract: It has taken thirty-five years for a press to prepare a critical edition of Luis Goytisolo's Antagonia (1973–81). However, one has finally been released with Carlos Javier García's edition of Goytisolo's tetralogy for Cátedra. In the spirit of Catedra's Letras Hispánicas collection, García's edition compiles, annotates, and introduces the Antagonía's four novels. At the same time, the edition differs from other books in the Letras Hispánicas collection in that it includes a Gonzalo Sobejano's epilogue. Although there have been recent editions of Antagonía—the last one released in 2012 by the Spanish press Anagrama—, the complexity and length of the work requires certain assistance for readers, and this edition ...
