Vicente Gomis-Izquierdo, Department of Foreign Languages, presented at the 2018 Southeast Coastal Conference on Languages and Literatures, held in Savannah, Georgia, April 5–7, 2018.

Gomis-Izquierdo's paper, titled "La presencia de la mujer en El anacronópete de Enrique Gaspar," discusses the criticism of the social perception of women in late-nineteenth-century Spain implicit in the novel by Gaspar. This work is new in the sense that this is a very understudied novel, seen traditionally only as a fun sci-fi text and not as a novel with a deep social message.
