Dr. Cindy Brantmeier is presenting a lecture, "Being a Citizen of the World: Research on Reading across Languages and Cultures."
Castellanos Moya will give a public reading from his novel Insensatez at 10 AM in GA 1100. That same day, the department will hold a conversation with Castellanos Moya regarding another novel of his entitled El sueño del retorno from 4 to 6 in GA 2134. I have attached a flier advertising Castellano Moya’s visit, and please share the event with with others who may be interested.
Cellphone movie flyerThere will be the first cellphone film festival showcasing students' collaborative films that have come out of two sections of HISP-S 322 (Introduction to Film Analysis in Spanish) that I have taught during the fall and spring semesters. In short, students were organized into groups of four and made short films (two to five minutes) with dialogue in Spanish. In addition, students were tasked with including at least three concepts or theoretical ideas from the course in their films.
