Priscilla Gac-Artigas, Ph.D., professor in the Department of World Languages and Cultures and a Fulbright Scholar, has been appointed to the editorial board of the RANLE, the official literary review/research journal of the North American Academy of the Spanish Language (known as ANLE for its acronym in Spanish).
The RANLE, founded in 2011, is a space of dialogue and reflection open to contributions that reveal the different dimensions of the linguistic, literary and cultural endeavors of the Hispanic world in a venue where scientific quality meets academic rigor. It is published twice a year and welcomes exclusively unpublished creative or research works written in Spanish.
Gac-Artigas is a correspondent member of the North American Academy of the Spanish Language, an organization founded in 1973 in New York City, a corresponding member of the Real Academia Española (Royal Academy of Spanish) and a member of the Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española (Association of Academies of the Spanish Language).
The ANLE’s core mission is to support and promote the study and correct usage of Spanish in the U.S., including Puerto Rico; to collaborate on projects and study plans for the teaching of Spanish in the U.S. at all levels of schooling; and to promote and strengthen North American Hispanic cultural heritage. For its work in fostering the unity and the defense of the Spanish language in the U.S., the ANLE has been recognized as the highest authority of Spanish in the country by the Department of Education.
