Recent advances in the study of Span­ish socio­pho­net­ic per­cep­tion
This book pro­vides a cut­ting-edge explo­ration of the social mean­ing of pho­net­ic vari­a­tion in the Span­ish-speak­ing world. Its 11 chap­ters elu­ci­date the ways in which lis­ten­ers process, per­ceive, and prop­a­gate pho­net­i­cal­ly moti­vat­ed social mean­ing across mono­lin­gual and con­tact vari­eties, includ­ing the Span­ish spo­ken in Spain (Asturias, Cat­alo­nia, and Andalu­sia), Ecuador, Colom­bia, Argenti­na, Chile, Mex­i­co, and the Unit­ed States. The book presents a wide vari­ety of new and inno­v­a­tive research by renowned schol­ars, and the chap­ters exam­ine issues like the influ­ence of visu­al cues, bilin­gual­ism, con­tact, geo­graph­ic mobil­i­ty, and phono­tac­tic pre­dictabil­i­ty on social and lin­guis­tic per­cep­tion. Addi­tion­al­ly, the vol­ume engages in time­ly dis­cus­sions of inter­sec­tion­al­i­ty, replic­a­bil­i­ty, and the future of the field. As the first uni­fied ref­er­ence on Span­ish socio­pho­net­ic per­cep­tion, this vol­ume will be use­ful in grad­u­ate and under­grad­u­ate class­rooms, in libraries, and on the book­shelf of any schol­ar inter­est­ed in Span­ish socio­pho­net­ics.

Exiles, trav­ellers and vagabonds: rethink­ing mobil­i­ty in Fran­coph­o­ne women’s writ­ing
Trav­el writ­ing, migrant writ­ing, exile writ­ing, expa­tri­ate writ­ing, and even the fic­tion­al trav­el­ling pro­tag­o­nists that emerge in lit­er­ary works from around the globe, have his­tor­i­cal­ly tend­ed to depict mobil­i­ty as a mas­cu­line phe­nom­e­non. The pres­ence of such gen­res in women’s writ­ing, how­ev­er, pos­es a rich and unique body of work. This vol­ume exam­ines the texts of Fran­coph­o­ne women who have expe­ri­enced or reflect­ed upon the expe­ri­ence of transna­tion­al move­ment. Due to the par­tic­u­lar­i­ty of their rela­tion­ship to home, and the con­se­quent impact of this on their expe­ri­ence of dis­place­ment, the study of women’s mobil­i­ty opens up new ques­tions in our under­stand­ing of the move­ment from place to place, and in our broad­er under­stand­ing of colo­nial and post­colo­nial worlds. Address­ing the prox­im­i­ties and over­laps that exist between the expe­ri­ences of women exiles, migrants, expa­tri­ates and trav­ellers, the col­lect­ed essays in this book seek to chal­lenge the use­ful­ness, rel­e­vance or valid­i­ty of such terms for con­cep­tu­al­is­ing today’s com­plex pat­terns of transna­tion­al mobil­i­ty and the gen­dered iden­ti­ties pro­duced there­in.
