Student Views help showcase the cultural and academic experiences of students who have spent time in Latin America or have engaged with Latin American communities in the U.S. Entries can take a variety of forms, from narrative stories of personal adventure to academic descriptions of research findings, and everything in between!

Student Views Submissions
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:
- 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.
- 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 welcomed.
- 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.
