September 2018 (101.3)

The September 2018 issue of Hispania (101.3) is now available in print and online. The issue highlights two articles on effective pedagogy for Spanish heritage language students, penned by Pamela Anderson-Mejías, and Claudia Holguín Mendoza, Robert Davis, and Julie Weise. Complementing these two articles is Francisco Salgado-Robles’s book review of Marta Fairclough and Sara M. Beaudrie’s Innovative Strategies for Heritage Language Teaching. Mércia Regina Santana Flannery’s article analyzes pressing concerns regarding offensive treatment towards Haitian immigrants in Brazil. Metaphoric representation of Muslims in the Spanish media is studied by Carol Ready in her article. Muriel Gallego and Rebecca Pozzi analize mood production and recognition. Brian T. Chandler studies Jorge Volpi’s En busca de Klingsor; Bryce Maxey examines the first part of La Araucana; and Euna Lee looks at code-switching in Killer Crónicas. The eighteen book/media reviews offer a variety of evaluations of new books, which will be of interest to Hispania’s readers. In the section on linguistics, language, and media, Amàlia Llombart-Huesca reviews Carmen Silva-Corvalán and Andrés Enrique-Arias’s recent book, Sociolingüística y pragmática del español, and Frank Nuessel pens a review of Javier Muñoz-Basols’s Portal de la lingüística hispánica/Hispanic Linguistics. Of interest will be Adrián Pérez-Boluda’s review of Kathryn Ann Woolard’s Singular and Plural: Ideologies of Linguistic Authority in 21st Century Catalonia. In addition to the three reviews on film, fiction, and poetry, the September issue also boasts seven book and Media reviews on Pan-Hispanic/Luso-Brazilian Literary and Cultural Studies, including reviews of Gabriel García Márquez in Retrospect: A Collection and Decolonizing Indigeneity: New Approaches to Latin American Literature.



Hispania invites the submission of original, unpublished manuscripts on language, linguistics, literature, film, culture, cultural studies, applied linguistics, and pedagogy having to do with Spanish and Portuguese. Submissions should display thorough and comprehensive knowledge of the subject and field. Further considerations in the evaluation of manuscripts include contribution to the advancement of knowledge, originality of method or focus, organization, and clarity of expression. Submissions of essays between 4,000–7,500 words may be in English, Portuguese, or Spanish.

Hispania is pleased to announce the creation of a new section of Short-form Articles, which will accompany our existing array of Research Articles. Short-form Articles are editorially reviewed, instead of undergoing external peer review; consist of 1,500–3,000 words of body text (no notes are permitted); frequently, but not always, provide readers with a brief list of articles for further reading; consider in-depth topics of interest to K–20 educators in the fields of Spanish and Portuguese; be thoughtfully written in Spanish, Portuguese, or English; reflect a deep understanding or longstanding interest in the topics covered; and be authored by teacher-scholars at all levels. All short-form submissions should promote an inclusive and forward-thinking vision for the second century of the AATSP and should be free of biased language, unsupported speculation, and content that might be regarded as promotional. Authors of successful submissions should be open to making changes to their Short-form Article prior to publication based on suggestions from the editorial review process. Submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis and should be sent to
