This book features essays by peers, colleagues and former students of Malcolm Alan Compitello. After obtaining his Ph.D. from Indiana University in 1979, Malcolm went on to notable achievements as both teacher and administrator, scholar and editor, mentor and friend to many in the field. Most recently Professor and Head of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Arizona, he has also held positions at Michigan State University, the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Middlebury College, Indiana University-Purdue University, Grand Valley State College, St. John's University and the University of Verona. He also was elected to the Executive Committee of the ADFL (Association of Departments of Foreign Languages) (2003-05) and was President of the ADFL in 2005.
Although he is perhaps most well known today as the Executive Editor of the Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies, he has also been the editor/co-editor of numerous other projects including Madrid: De Fortunata a la M-40 (Alianza, 2003), Rewriting the Good Fight: Critical Essays on the Literature of the Spanish Civil War (Michigan State UP, 1989), Critical Approaches to the Writings of Juan Benet (UP of New England, 1984), and also The American Hispanist. His monographic work titled Ordering the Evidence: Volverás a Región and Civil War Fiction (Puvill, 1983) remains a touchstone for studies of Spanish novelist Juan Benet today, and his more recent essays have consistently been at the forefront of the ‘spatial turn’ in Hispanic Studies.
