Congratulations to Dr. Ilaria Serra whose entry “Italian American Femininities” for the new Routledge History of the Italian Americans has just been published.
Ilaria writes: “It is a review of Italian American memoirs by women and it is structured in an original way as a walk among the rooms of their homes.” Check it out: https://www.routledge.com/The-Routledge-History-of-Italian-Americans/Connell-Pugliese/p/book/9780415835831
Congratulations to Dr. Frédéric Conrod, whose article “Vuelos traumáticos, Padres imaginarios y Burguesía Neurótica en Relatos Salvajes (2014) de Damián Szifrón” will appear in the 2018 issue of Journal Etica y Cine from the University of Buenos Aires.

Congratulations to Dr. Nuria Godón who has recently published her single-authored book, La pasión esclava: Alianzas masoquistas en La Regenta (Purdue University Press, 2017), which is considered by the well-known Hispanist, Lou Charon-Deutsch, as “the most important work on La Regenta to appear in recent years. Illuminating, superbly documented and stimulating.” http://www.thepress.purdue.edu/titles/format/9781612495187
