Hispanic Studies Professor’s journal celebrates tenth year

Hispanic Studies Professor Juan Carlos Toledano Redondo’s journal, Alambique, will celebrate a decade of publication with a fourth monograph in February 2024. 

In an alambique (n. still), ancient alchemists sought to turn base metals into gold. University of South Florida Tampa Library offers this journal as a distiller of (im)possible dreams of science fiction and fantasy.

Alambique: Academic Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy is a double blind peer-reviewed, open-access journal devoted to scholarly research and criticism in the fields of science fiction and fantasy originally composed in Spanish or Portuguese. Alambique publishes scholarly articles written in English, as long as the main focus of the study concentrates on one of the Spanish or Portuguese cultural regions of the world. It also accepts scholarly articles written in Spanish, Portuguese and English that focus on relevant cultural contact areas, i.e. Catalan, Guarani, Nahuatl, etc. Alambique also intends to publish old and/or largely forgotten literary works that helped forge the Spanish and Portuguese tradition in science fiction and fantasy. These texts, whenever possible, have accompanying English translation.

Hispanic Studies Professor Juan Carlos Toledano Redondo founded and co-edits Alambique. In honor of Alambique’s tenth anniversary, a fourth monograph will be published in February 2024. Professor Toledano Redondo teaches courses on the fantastic, nation-building, cultural studies, and feminism in contemporary Latin America and Spain.
