Greetings!



My name is Noris Rios and I am a doctoral student in counseling psychology at the University of Miami. As part of my dissertation research, I am conducting a survey of impostor feelings and experiences among Hispanic or Latin American students. I would greatly appreciate if you could participate and/or forward this study to potential participants. Participation in the study is expected to take approximately 15 minutes.



Participants must self-identify as Hispanic, Latino/a/x, or having an ethnic background from Spanish or Portuguese speaking areas of Latin America. Participants must also be currently enrolled in a college or university program, read English proficiently, have spent their formative years in the US, and be over the age of 18.





To qualify for participation in the study, please click here: https://umiami.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ewIGPAU0tzdAhtb





Participation is confidential and voluntary, meaning participants may withdraw from the study at any time. If you have any questions, you can contact me at [email protected].



The proposed study does not pose any anticipated risk and is approved by the University of Miami Institutional Review Board. The university’s Human Subjects Research Office can be contacted at [email protected].



Thank you in advance for your time!
On Prof. Tom Baginski’s recent trip to Morelia, Michoacán (México), he gave an interview on Mexican TV. The moderators, Manuel Ángel Cortés and Bulmaro Velázquez, interviewed Tom as part of their TV show “Café Nostalgia”. This particular episode focused on 1960s and 1970s singers Angélica María, "La novia de México" (Mexico's sweetheart), and actor/singer Enrique Guzmán and their influence on popular European music at the time.

See the short clip below. A longer version will air on “Mexicanal” in the U.S. in spring 2020 when the all-new season of “Café Nostalgia” starts. In Charleston, Comcast broadcasts Mexicanal on channel 616.

Dear CofC students, Hispanic Studies now offers an intensive course of study in Portuguese which will bring you to the intermediate level and fulfill your language requirement (202) in only two semesters! The first step is to take PORT 150 in Fall 2023 —a six-credit class that meets face-to-face MWF at 10 am, with an online component, followed by PORT 250 (same format) in Spring 2024.
Whether you are looking for a fast-track to fulfill the language requirement or want to add a second or third language to your repertoire, this is a great opportunity. If you have any questions, please reach out to the instructor, Dr. Daniela Meireles, or to dept chair Dr. Mike Gomez.

This year's cohort of Global Scholars is an impressive group! Of the 18 graduating seniors and 5 faculty members, there are 5 trilinguals, which sets a Global Scholars record! One of our current Global Scholars faculty -- Devon Hanahan, Hispanic Studies -- recently achieved proficiency in French (her third language) and was recognized by a change in ribbon color at the ceremony.

The Global Scholars were honored Wednesday, April 26 in the Wells Fargo Auditorium. Two Global Scholars are triple majors. These students' international work and language proficiency serve as a model of globalization.

Please join me in congratulating our newest Global Scholars!
Sincerely,
Joe

Dear College of Charleston community and our community partners,



Please join us for the public presentation of the final projects of the students enrolled in Spanish 400: Service Learning, an experiential learning course offered in the Department of Hispanic Studies. The students enrolled in the course have dedicated a significant number of volunteer hours this semester contributing to the Hispanic and Latinx Community in the greater Charleston metropolitan area. Their final projects document their experiences and serve as an amazing opportunity to learn about the meaningful ways students at the College of Charleston are giving back to the community.



When: Thursday, April 27 from 12 to 1pm (Reading Day at noon), in Arnold Hall, Jewish Studies Center, 96 Wentworth Street.



Format: Students will be stationed throughout the room with their laptops for audience members to informally chat with each student one-on-one, view their presentation displays, and ask questions.



Service Projects this semester included working with multilingual learners in CCSD schools, contributing at medical clinics, law firms, food banks, and more! Come hear about the growing Hispanic community in our area and the ways that CofC Spanish majors and minors are giving back.



Please share this message widely and join us!



My best wishes,

Emily

HISP 252: Animals and Meaty Bodies in the Latin American Imaginary
MWF 12:00 – 12:50 with Dr. Christina García
NO prerequisites. Counts for HISP, LACS, & WGS.

Critical Animal Studies emerges from both a concern for the well-being of nonhuman animals and the awareness that racist, sexist, and classist
systems share the same logic as anthropocentrism. Posing the question of the
animal within the disciplines of the Humanities has brought back critical attention to ethics and difference. In the context of Latin American studies, the animal turn provides another framework with which to examine inherited colonial binaries such the civilized and the barbarous. Using animals as allegorical devices to address the dehumanization of the disenfranchised has been a long Spanish American literary tradition.
