Post"Memorias del Hispanismo Estadounidense" (Noel Valis, USA, 02/13/15 12:51 pm)
I'm glad that you've put my essay on Hemingway's "The Fifth Column" on the website. I think WAIS readers will find it of interest. Over the years, I've worked quite a bit on the Spanish Civil War, in particular with the Teaching Representations of the Spanish Civil War volume, as well as a chapter in Sacred Realism. And my current project on Lorca also deals, inevitably, with the Civil War.
It's been too many years, John, since we last saw each other. I will certainly think about attending the WAIS Golden Jubilee. (This is terrific news in itself!) I read Ronald Hilton's pieces on Emlia Pardo Bazán years ago, but I never met him, alas.
Also, WAISers may be interested in a new volume of essays that has come out, edited by Anne Caballé and Randolph Pope, ¿Por qué España? Memorias del hispanismo estadounidense.
JE comments: Another tome to add to my reading list. This is an anthology of essays by some of the superstars of US Hispanism. In addition to Noël Valis, I see a chapter from Linda Gould Levine, who was my first-ever literature teacher at Dartmouth College (fall 1982: she was a Visiting Professor that term). I'm sure Prof. Levine does not remember me. I've also met Prof. Randolph Pope, co-editor of the volume, at several conferences. The name sounds very Anglo, but I believe he's Chilean.

What about the WAIS Golden Jubilee? Mark your calendars: 10-12 October, Stanford. I will start ironing out the particulars this week. Much more information to follow...soon.
