Dansereau publishes new book

Diane Dansereau, Associate Professor of French, is pleased to
announce the publication of her new book Variations Stylistiques:

cours de grammaire avancée with Yale University Press. This
advanced-level grammar text/reference book is based on extensive
linguistic studies and differs from traditional grammars by
concentrating on the more natural and appropriate forms employed
by native speakers, rather than teaching prescribed forms. By
learning these stylistic variations, students of French will better
comprehend Francophone speakers/writers and advance their own proficiency levels
closer to those of a native speaker.

Jenkins on the future of the Spanish language

Rapid changes in the use of the Spanish language in the Southwest may lead to the language's extinction in coming decades in the region unless bilingualism is accepted and promoted, according to Devin Jenkins, Associate Professor of Spanish and Modern Languages Department Chair. In this interview,  Jenkins discusses is research which has found that in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, areas with a large population of Spanish and Mexican descent, the use of Spanish is no longer growing.

Is Spanish language dying in the U.S. Southwest? One expert thinks so

María Luisa Fernandez Martinez Publishes New Book!
El medio fotográfico en la narrativa de Antonio Muñoz Molina
En la narrativa de Antonio Muñoz Molina, las fotografías preceden con frecuencia a los personajes e incluso los reemplazan. Las instantáneas acentúan la importancia del azar y de los actos mínimos, alteran la noción lineal del tiempo y destacan ciertos momentos a los que se vuelve desde el presente de la narración. Estimulan o suplantan la memoria y suponen el punto de partida de múltiples invenciones. Constituyen, en definitiva, un filtro que orienta la lectura. Este libro explora la articulación de un universo textual que se origina en una intersección incesante entre lo fotográfico y lo narrativo.
