Spanish language lives a dual reality in the United States: it has become the nation’s second language by the number of speakers – the US is only second to Mexico, across the world, in the total number of Spanish speakers – but today it is also suffering a strong pushback. Can power diminish the strongest of bonds in human understanding?
Is Spanish strong enough to survive in the United States? A clue may be found in the strong presence of Spanish-language media – both traditional, as well as online and social – but also in the emergence of Spanish-language literature which is a growing reality since the late 1990’s in the fields of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and drama.
Diaspora is an attempt to bring geographically and culturally diverse voices from Spanish-speaking authors who have made a point of writing and publishing in their mother language in the United States. 25 authors – a majority of which are women – make a strong case for Spanish as a language that not only resists, but flourishes creatively and beautifully in a strange land.<
