Our 2014 Fall Meeting at the University of Southern California was a huge success! We had an emotive homage to USC Professor Emerita Carmen Silva Corvalán and an excellent plenary presentation by Professor Comfort Pratt from Texas Tech University. Attendees were able to participate in a series of very interesting presentations and workshops (see program here) and they also had the opportunity to catch up with colleagues and old friends during lunch. Thanks to the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Vista Higher Learning, Cengage Learning, the Department of Modern Languages at Azusa Pacific University, the Embajada de España, and the Phi Omicron Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi.
