JanetPerez

Dr. Janet Pérez, former Paul Whitfield Horn Professor of Spanish at Texas Tech University, and member of Sigma Delta Pi’s Order of Don Quijote, one of the highest honors of the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, has died.  Professor Pérez’s accomplishments and contributions are vast, to include her roles as Editor of Hispania (2001-09), Founding Co-Editor of Monographic Review/Revista monográfica, Editorial Board member of numerous renowned peer-reviewed journals, and author of countless books, editions, book reviews and critical articles (Dr. Pérez’s CV).  Hispanism lost a giant with Dr. Pérez’s passing, and she will be sorely missed.
