About fósforo

fósforo ignites. In Spanish, the title means match, chemical element 15, bringer of light, creative spark. Elemental and explosive, fósforo is part forum, part showcase, part creative release. The diversity of Hispanic and Latinx culture has grown steadily at the College of the Holy Cross, and with fósforo it has been granted a voice.

The students of the Omicron Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society at Holy Cross, and the Foreign Language Assitants (FLAs) in Spanish wanted to create a space where Spanish could be heard and Hispanic creativity presented not as a function of a language program but as a community-wide cultural reality. Each issue contains contributions from students studying Spanish at the College and in the community, from students for whom Spanish is not a requirement but a heritage, from Foreign Language Assistants whose home is in Spain and Latin America, and from professors whose devotion to Hispanic and Latinx cultures is the reason for being at Holy Cross.

fósforo celebrates the Hispanic and Latinx contributions to the diversity of Holy Cross. Its existence is a reminder that on campus, in the community, in the U.S. and indeed the world, English is not the sole language of the creative imagination.

Sobre fósforo

fósforo enciende. Significa cerilla, elemento químico número 15, ilustración, ingenio. Elemental y explosivo, fósforo es en parte foro, en parte muestrario, en parte desahogo creativo. La diversidad de las perspectivas hispánicas y latinx va aumentándose a un ritmo constante en Holy Cross. Con fósforo, ha encontrado una voz.

Los estudiantes del Capítulo Omicron Epsilon de Sigma Delta Pi (Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispánica) y los Lectores (FLAs) de Español han creado un espacio en el cual el español se puede escuchar y la creatividad hispánica se presenta no como función de un programa de estudios sino como una realidad cultural en la comunidad universitaria. Revista de inspiración hispánica, fósforo procura reunir contribuciones de alumnos que estudian español en el College y la comunidad, de estudiantes para quienes el español no es un requisito sino una herencia, de lectores que han venido a EE.UU. de fuera y de profesores cuyo apego a las culturas hispánicas y latinx es la razón por la cual están donde están.

fósforo celebra las contribuciones hispanas y latinx a la diversidad de nuestra comunidad. Su existencia nos recuerda que en el campus, en el vecindario, en el país y el mundo, el inglés no es el único idioma del ingenio.
