The press as an ideological vehicle in the struggle between Spanish and English in the territorial New Mexico of the late nineteenth century

The aim of this paper is to analyse the linguistic-ideological representations of Spanish language that can be found within a corpora of 64 texts from Angloamerican and Spanish-speaking newspapers that were published in territorial New Mexico between 1890 and 1899. The conclusion I want to reach is that these newspapers materialised the tension between hegemonic and contrahegemonic power that exists between both groups. Furthermore, it will be shown how the Spanish-speaking newspapers constituted a contrahegemonic vindication against the dominant Anglosaxon ideology.

Hispanic Social Place Names of Manila

Place names mirror the social history of a territory, the daily life and power relations of its settlers. Hispanic historical social place names in Manila depict the society of the city during the colonial period. Here I extract and explain the living toponyms coined before the battle of Manila in 1945, and I discuss the different activities, peoples, and economic classes they depict. I conclude that different areas were prone to administrative, financial, leisure, military, non- profit, rural, transport and working-class activities, at different distances from the heart in Intramuros according to their relevance.

Spanish is the key. Its importance in the recovery of Guam’s history and in the preservation of the mestizo culture of the Chamorro people

Spanish language presence in the remote U.S. Territory of Guam spans over five centuries. Spain’s impact on the native Chamorro culture and language remains evident in spite of over 120 years of Anglo-Americanisation. In its time, Spanish was spoken as a second language many island natives, and forms an important part of Guam’s rich mestizo heritage. However, the island’s geopolitical isolation has removed it from the consciousness of the Spanish speaking world. Now considered a foreign language in Guam, Spanish is making a comeback as Guam seeks to create a broader awareness of its people and culture. Utilizing its mestizo heritage, Guam will be able to reconnect with the Spanish speaking world. In recent years, the Hispanic heritage of Guam has gained more attention and recognition. This text examines Spain’s legacy in the island, and the role of Spanish language in Guam’s past, present, and its future potential as a vital tool for the Chamorro people as they continue to search for their history and cultural identity.

Ángel López García-Molins and the coexistence of spanish citizens trough their languages

This article talks about the project developed by Ángel López García-Molins for more than forty years: to keep the cohesion of Spain through its languages. To carry out this research, firstly, we have collected some papers written by this linguist or talking about him, in the context of the peninsular languages. Then, we have classified, described, and explained the selected material. For the sake of objectivity, we have let this collection of texts speak for itself. The manuscript puts the focus on where and when this desire was kindled, the linguistic panorama and the corresponding challenges he faced, and the strategies he followed when carrying out his project.
