BASIC PROJECT INFORMATION
Title: Antología Abierta de Literatura Hispánica
Project lead: Julie Ward, University of Oklahoma
Subject: Hispanic Literature
Target audience: Hispanic literature courses at all levels

Rebus project manager(s): Zoe Wake Hyde
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).
Resources will be offered to support the implementation, including:
- Assignment brief
- Marking rubric
- Suggested assignment timeline
- List of possible texts in public domain
- Sample MOU for students
- Guide to Creative Commons licensing for students
- Community support from others running similar assignments
These resources are offered as a starting point only, and can be adapted to meet your course’s requirements.
We will also be looking for copy editors & proofreaders (fluent in Spanish) at a later date.
ADDITIONAL PROJECT INFORMATION
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.
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.

I would like to learn more about this project. I will be teaching a Survey of Spanish Literature course in the fall. My email is: email@example.com
Hi @lakebrenda11, thanks so much for getting in touch! We’re in the process of putting together the resources for the assignment at the moment, so I’ll let you know as soon as those are ready to take a look at. In the meantime, @wardjulie can answer any questions you have (although I believe she’s somewhere in the Peruvian wilderness right now, so might not reply immediately!).
Hi! I am Professor of Spanish at York College/CUNY and in the fall I am teaching the 300 level course on Cervantes. I would love my students to participate in this project. Please let me know how we can be part of this. Depending on the semester I also teach survey courses of Peninsular Literature too. I look forward to hearing from you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi @mballantyne! Thanks for your interest, we’d love to have you and your students contribute to this anthology.
I believe @wardjulie is still travelling for the moment, but I will give you and @lakebrenda11 access to a shared drive with the first of the assignment documents we have prepared. Julie has also started writing about her experience with the project here.
The folder mainly contains the documents that Julie used to run the assignment in her own class:
- Edición Crítica Assignment Sheet
- Critical Edition Checklist
- Ejemplo Formato Edición Crítica
The plan is to create editable/flexible versions of these documents that can be adapted to any class or course, but for now they are hopefully a useful starting point.
You will also see in-progress drafts of the following that we are developing at Rebus to be resources for any faculty working with students on open textbook projects:
- A guide to Creative Commons Licenses
- An MOU between faculty & participating students
Once Julie is back, we’ll touch base again and talk in more detail. Thanks again for joining us!
I can see that this project is just beginning, but I’d like to chip in. I am a native spanish speaker and particularly well-read in 20th Century latin american literature. My main interest is in fantastic realism a la Borges and Cortázar.
I’d be more than happy to facilitate access to important texts as well as general proofreading.
@sebastian.higherlearning Thanks Sebastian, that would be wonderful! We’ll keep you posted as things get underway.
