Congratulations to Dr. Barry Velleman, Professor of Spanish (Emeritus), who has coathored with Karina Belletti (Pehuajó, Argentina) a study on the Argentine writer, teacher, actress, feminist (etc.) Juana Manso (1819-1875). The article appeared in Cuarenta naipes (Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata, Argentina), and is also on the Juana Manso webpage. We think the piece may be of interest to students of Latin American culture and world feminism, nineteenth-century. It refers to a fascinating, bizarre pro-feminist, pro-republican novel called Dolores (New York and Montevideo, 1846) by the Danish-German writer and revolutionary, Paul Harro Harring (1798-1870). The protagonist of the novel was based on the figure of Juana herself.
Congratulations to Dr. Tara Daly, who was interviewed by Radio San Gabriel in El Alto, Bolivia. Radio San Gabriel was started in 1955 and has a long history of broadcasting in the Aymara indigenous language, both for educational and political purposes. Don Clemente Mamani, who runs a weekly program on Aymara culture, interviewed Dr. Daly and an Aymara colleague, Doña Rosemery, about literature, oral traditions, and collective authorship.
