How will traditional varieties of Spanish (Spanish dialects that began before the formation of the United States) survive and thrive in these pandemic times? In the 21st century, on what aspects of their language are traditional Spanish communities focusing? How have U.S. Spanish dialects changed/reacted to the systemic shift in communication now? If you have relevant research, I'd like to gather a thematic anthology describing traditional Spanish as we move to a ''new normal.'' (I'll study IsleƱo Spanish; you pick your area of expertise.)

Please email Felice Coles ( for more information.
I'm looking to collect with a May 1st deadline.
