Dear Readers,

The print issue of ReVista has temporarily been suspended until further notice due to budget cuts. Those of you who have subscribed to ReVista over the years know that we aim to create a community, and we will continue to do so online.

Dear students,

Greetings from Somerville! Most all of you have returned home now and I hope you and  your families are healthy and well (and not too bored)!

We hope you will help ReVista keep the Student Views section going in this time of crisis to help share our experiences, academic and otherwise. We plan to publish one view a week, but we can only do that with your help. We are looking for three types of articles:

1)      If you returned to a Latin American country or a Latinx neighborhood in the United States, tell us how your community or country is handling the coronacrisis. Are restaurants and bars closed? What do the streets look like? Has a national emergency been declared? If people depended on libraries and schools for Internet access, what are they doing to get connected? Have you seen an extraordinary act of kindness or an unusual way of coping with the situation? Photos are welcome, if they are possible.

2)      Tell us about your academic research, your work on your thesis or a special project in language that people who are not in your field will understand. Anecdotes are encouraged. How did you get interested in the topic? What do you want to learn going forward? Photos welcome!

3)      Usually, we encourage travel and study abroad articles. Under the present circumstances, it’s not possible to write about current adventures. But many of you were too busy to write about January semester. Help us travel virtually by giving us a glimpse into your recent experiences.
