Faculty Book: Laura Callahan

Laura Callahan, ed.

Spanish and Portuguese across Time, Place, and Borders: Studies in Honour of Milton M. Azevedo
(Palgrave Macmillan, 2014)
This edited volume covers a diverse range of topics while retaining a common focus on the dynamic nature of languages and the social forces that shape them. The first part, “Linguistics and Literature: Translation, Society, and Language Variation,” includes the literary representation of speech and its social and regional variations, as well as some history on linguistic devices used in the service of social criticism. The contributors demonstrate that linguistic principles can offer productive approaches to the study of literature and that literary sources can serve as data for linguistic analysis. The second part, “Language Change, Language Contact, and Language Users,” considers both historical and present-day data on speech and speakers’ behavior. Laura Callahan (Prof., City) serves on the doctoral faculty in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian literatures and languages.
