Spanish Summer Language School acts as catalyst to create online journal

In the summer of 2003, Miguel Fernandez, Middlebury Class of 1985 and a professor of Spanish at the College, ran into Mark Del Mastro with whom he had studied at Middlebury in Madrid, in the master's program in 1988. Del Mastro, a professor at The Citadel, was teaching at the Language School. There they met Juan Pablo Spicer-Escalant, who teaches at Utah State and was the designated director for the new Middlebury program in Guadalajara. Discussions among the three led to the development and launching of "Decimononica," an online, international, refereed journal on nineteenth-century Hispanic cultural production. The journal has had more than 25,000 visitors and has become one of the leading journals in its field.
