It’s been a very good year around here if you happen to be named Ignacio.
The Department extends warm congratulations to Ignacio Infante, who will be promoted to associate professor of comparative literature and Spanish, with tenure, as of July 1. Ignacio is a comparatist with wide-ranging interests in problems of modern and contemporary poetry, Transatlantic studies, and the theory and practice of translation.
The Department also congratulates Ignacio Sánchez Prado, who will be promoted to professor of Spanish and Latin American Studies as of July 1. A specialist of contemporary Mexican literature and film, Nacho also has wide-ranging interests in world literature, and in how Mexico fits into the world literature paradigm.
Bulletin Marcel Proust
Since 1950, the Bulletin Marcel Proust has been the yearly publication of the Société des Amis de Marcel Proust et des Amis de Combray, a French organization devoted to the study of Marcel Proust and his works. It contains letters, documents, articles, book reviews, and a bibliography.
Revista de Estudios Hispánicos
The department is the home to the Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, an internationally recognized, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original manuscripts in all areas of Hispanic literatures, cultures, and film, including essays on theoretical and interdisciplinary topics. The Revista de Estudios Hispánicos has received a grade of A+ from the Australian Research Council ranking of research journals.
According to the ERA 2010 Ranked Journal List definition, an A+ journal would typically be one of the best in its field or subfield in which to publish and would typically cover the entire field/subfield. Virtually all papers they publish will be of a very high quality. These are journals where most of the work is important (it will really shape the field) and where researchers boast about getting accepted. Acceptance rates would typically be low and the editorial board would be dominated by field leaders, including many from top institutions.
