Paragraph CV

María Rosario Quintana is an Associate Professor and has been the Director of Graduate Studies in Spanish at Marshall University, and a researcher from the prestigious Real Academia Española. She taught at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid among other institutions in Spain, such as the Centro de Estudios Académicos a Distancia where she coordinated the Department of Spanish Language and Literature. In addition, she has participated in the supervision of a Summer Study Abroad Program in Spanish at the Universidad Antonio de Nebrija in Madrid. Dr. Quintana served for a period of over six years at the Real Academia Española. There she collaborated as a philologist and coordinated teams of researchers among other responsibilities. She worked in the development of various philological projects, CREA (Corpus of Reference of the Spanish Language) and CORDE (Diachronic Corpus of the Spanish Language), linguistic databases that maintain the academic dictionaries. Likewise, she updated and computerized with other scholars the lexical files of the Real Academia Española. Teaching and research are closely linked. Her courses, books, articles, and presentations focus on modern Spanish literature, Spanish as a second language, interdisciplinary, transatlantic and translation studies, such as a recent book, Dos Generaciones Perdidas, as well as Bibliografía de Dámaso Alonso, in collaboration, and the seven volumes that comprise Lengua y literatura castellanas, expanded and updated textbooks.

Statement of Candidacy

To participate as a College/University representative in the AATSP’s mission of promoting the study and the teaching of Spanish and Portuguese, their literatures and cultures means to make real the possibility and the responsibility of helping other individuals, professional colleagues, students, and institutions, in a task that has at its base the development and the practice of those languages. With my effort and enthusiasm I would like to achieve this goal via the attainment of several objectives.

First, given the worrisome circumstances of the loss of professorial positions in languages in the United States, it is my wish to contribute my professional and administrative experience in different institutions to improve this situation.

Secondly, I would like to help promote greater graduate student participation in the Association, in contributing to Hispania, and in our annual conference. This experience is significant for the profession and for students in their training to become future specialists.

Third, I propose to assist teaching professionals, students of educational matters, and researchers with my experience in creating and developing linguistic databases, so as to share with colleagues the ways to use these rich resources in teaching and studying languages. A large amount of encoded texts –hundreds of millions of words– that allow a multiplicity of lexical and grammatical searches can be used by educators as a source of teaching materials, and by researchers in linguistic and literary studies. This goal that I am proposing could be achieved by means of workshops, beginning at the 2012 AATSP Conference.
