2015 Outstanding Scholarly Publication Award

The AATSP Outstanding Scholarly Publication Award is given annually to an article published in Hispania. The focus of the award alternates on an annual basis. The focus for all odd-numbered years is literature, film, and culture while the focus for even-numbered years is linguistics and language science/pedagogy. Hispania Associate Editors nominate and select the winner from all the eligible published articles. 


The recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Scholarly Publication Award is John Maddox for his article "AfroReggae: Antropofagia, Sublimation, and Intimate Revolt in the Favela” published in the September 2014 issue of Hispania [97.3: 463-476].


The members of the Selection Committee had the following comments about this article:

The article provides the specialist and non-specialist reader with a clear idea of the role of AfroReggae as an artistic movement within the Brazilian literary tradition and the complexity of its positive relationship to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. The author deftly takes the reader through the works of those theorists who early on wrote about the idea of how art could transform the favelas’ drug laden culture into a more productive space for its unfortunate citizens. Maddox effectively demonstrates how AfroReggae does not constitute a rupture with past literary tradition but rather a continuation of an art form which served the inhabitants of the favelas as a way to endure their lives of squalor and poverty.
