Esferas is a 2-credit course designed to support the journal Esferas, the online and print on demand undergraduate journal of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. The journal works as an extension of the academic learning in the department, and each year features one of the subject areas covered in our courses. Students will learn and perform all activities related to the publication of an academic journal, including but not limited to performing peer review, editing, and online and on page editing and proofreading. Students will also learn how to read, interpret and write about the featured topic, acquiring the necessary proficiency in the scholarship available to write an introduction for the journal. The final paper, which will consist of an introduction for the journal, will be selected from the students’ final project and published.
