Target audience: Hispanic literature courses at all levels

The Antología abierta de literatura hispana (Open Anthology of Hispanic Literature, AALH) is a collection of public-domain texts from the Hispanic world, with critical introductions and annotations in Spanish by undergraduate students in Julie Ward’s Introduction to Hispanic Literature and Culture course at the University of Oklahoma. The AALH is intended as a freely accessible digital resource for students of Hispanic literature, and proposes an inclusive, broad, and evolving definition of the canon. You can view the first edition of the collection here.
We are looking for collaborators who will implement the critical edition assignment in their own courses and submit the student-created critical editions for inclusion in future editions. An implementation guide is available for instructors who would like to replicate this assignment.
We are looking for profs teaching Hispanic literature courses to implement a critical edition assignment for their students and to submit the student-created critical editions to expand the Antología abierta de literatura hispana (Open Anthology of Hispanic Literature, AALH).
We will also be looking for copy editors & proofreaders (fluent in Spanish) at a later date.
