ULM faculty member to direct publishing house

University of Louisiana at Monroe faculty member Dr. Christian Rubio, assistant professor of Spanish, was selected to plan a new publishing house sponsored by the Academia Norteamericana de la Lengua Española.

The goal is for ANLE to serve as a publishing outlet for Spanish-teaching professors.

Rubio, who leads a committee of eight other ANLE members, indicates that he is still developing a logistics and marketing plan. When complete, he will identify professors from around the U.S. to help him identify projects for publication.

“I have divided the states into regions and we will create a directory of all Spanish professors,” Rubio said. “Once we establish our guidelines, I intend to send them a letter inviting them to publish with us.”

Rubio says that planning is scheduled for completion by December when he will present to the ANLE director.
“His work on this project contributes to the strong reputation that the faculty in the Department of Foreign Languages at ULM have in teaching, scholarship and service,” said Dr. Ruth Smith, foreign languages department head.

“I am confident that he will carry out the task with the thoroughness and enthusiasm that he brings to all his projects.”
