This bilingual, English-Spanish, Spring publication combines reflections written by students registered in AP/SP4990 Foreign Language and Digital Media and papers produced by students enrolled in Spanish courses from the Spanish Studies program (DLLL) at Keele and Hispanic Studies at Glendon.
Foreign Language and Digital Media is a fourth year, Experiential Education course that focuses on reinforcing students’ oral, reading, writing, research, co-editing, and translation skills. The chosen reflections followed visits from professionals and academics invested in the areas of journalism, fiction and non-fiction narratives, and academic publications.
For this fourth year, capstone course, registered students have been guided in the production of individual and collaborate projects of various styles and lengths. They have conducted research, including interviews, that focus on current matters affecting the Spanish Speaking world -within and outside of Canada-.
This publication is an expression of our course content and students’ collective involvement, commitment, creativity, and willingness to work collaboratively towards the publication of this magazine’s special edition. Added to the reflections, this edition includes a cumulative essay project, and essays written by students registered in Spanish classes from the Spanish Program, Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics.
