09:36 pm - MA in Spanish?

Mods feel free to delete if inappropriate
Hello everyone,
I am a recent college graduate with a BA in Spanish.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what their experience has been like as a grad student studying Spanish. I'm not sure if I really want to study Spanish literature; I was thinking more along the lines of Spanish linguistics. Could anyone please tell me about their experiences? What is your program of study like?
Also I have thought about teaching Spanish-- how much will a MA degree in Spanish bennifit me if I decide to teach? (I want to teach K-12 not at the college level).
I'm sorry if this is too vague.
Any advice/experience will greatly be appreciated! :)

11:34 am - Translators are invited to participate in our project

We’re planning to publish a collection of translations of the poem “Might fame to descendents I leave…” by the late Gennady Grigoryev:



Might fame to descendents I leave in my will?

For any of you – bear in mind –

There is no inheritance, zero, nil,

There's nothing I’m leaving behind.


Crimea, the Baltic, the wash of the sea,

The yacht and the mast with a sail


This life when I go I am taking with me,

So live without life.

Live and wail.



11 Feb. 2003


Translated by Max Orkis © 2008

Our goal is to translate this poem into as many languages as possible – the more the merrier, including Latin and other ancient tongues.

Translators are invited to post their texts as separate entries. We urge you to use tags (e.g., Finnish, Spanish, correction, draft, etc.) and not to get carried away inventing new ones.

You’ll get what’s coming to you: your translation will be published (if it gets approved by our experts). NB: there will be no monetary reward; we can only afford publication expenses.

Only one translation into each of the languages will be published. Comments and collaboration are, therefore, strongly encouraged.

Heading this project are Yevgueniy Myakishev, Nutty Professor Bolduman, Gennady Grigoryev’s son, and Max Orkis.


For your convenience, we’ve opened a new community:

Please spread the word!

05:16 pm - hello!

there seem to be so many communities for english literature grad students that i thought i would start one for those of us studying the literature of other languages. any suggestions / comments / complaints are welcome. as are all languages.
i'm currently finishing off an mfa in literary translation at the university of iowa, where i translate from french and spanish. this coming fall, i'm moving to new york to start a doctorate in french literature. i'm from northern ireland but have been in the states for a while now...
