    Spanish Majors Journal Publications

    Two Spanish majors have had papers appear in a journal at Ricardo Palma University, Lima, Peru.

    Anna Graff, ’22 has published “El racismo de género en los Estados Unidos y el Perú a propósito de Aves sin nido de Clorinda Matto de Turner”, El Palma de la Juventud 4.5 (2022): 89-96. 
    Isis Santoni Morro, ’23 has put out “La parcialidad hacia la mujer de color por su rol de género en Roque Moreno de Teresa González de Fanning”, El Palma de la Juventud 4.5 (2022): 67–74.

    These articles attest to Anna and Isis’s commitment to the life of the mind and is another of their great accomplishments. Isis Santoni Morro will be graduating in spring 2023 with a double major in English and Spanish and a minor in Latin American and Latino Studies. Last semester Isis made the Dean’s list and she is presently appling for graduate study.  Anna Graff had majors in Spanish and Global Studies before graduating in the Spring of 2022. While at Loyola Anna received a grant from the Center for the Humanities allowing her to participate in an unpaid internship with MORA (Maryland Office for Refugees and Asylees). Knowing Isis and Anna, this publication news is not surprising, but nevertheless the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures is very proud of both.
