HISP / Dr. Joseph Weyers’s Contribution to CuéntELE Published

Dear HISP & Friends,

I am proud to announce that Dr. Joe Weyers’s contribution to  CuéntELE– an online publication of the School of Languages at EAFIT University, an esteemed private institution in Medellín, Colombia—has just been published.

Dr. Weyers’s invited piece forms part of a wider collection of short, thematically focused articles written by students, faculty and distinguished guests, and utilized in ELE’s curriculum.

Volume 6, in which Joe’s article “El caso excepcional del guaraní paraguayo” (pgs. 6-7) appears, deals with the theme of indigenous languages.

Un saludo,

Mike

Alumni Corner: Christin Stewart, ’11 – Spanish Beyond the Classroom

Dear HISP Students, Faculty & Friends,

I thought that I would pass along a link to Hispanic Studies’ Alumni Corner:

http://spanish.cofc.edu/alumni-corner/index.php

As you will see from looking through the included biographies, Hispanic Studies’ graduates have become involved in many fascinating fields—from public health, to education, to medicine and business, etc.—since finishing their respective degrees.

In addition, you will note that their Spanish/Portuguese studies –and related CofC-directed experiences abroad in Trujillo (Spain), Santiago (Chile), etc.– were only the beginning of their exposure to other peoples and places.

For those proceeding through major, minor and/or Gen. Ed. requirements, I hope you will keep such cases in mind and let them inspire you as you look to your own possible futures.

For those who have so generously supported Hispanic Studies over the years, I hope you will look with pride on the effects of your contributions.

Un saludo cordial a todos/as,

Mg
