Hostos Review/ Revista Hostosiana

Hostos Review/Revista Hostosiana is the Institute’s multilingual journal. It is devoted to gathering, showcasing, and disseminating contemporary literature written by Latin American, Caribbean, U.S. Latina/o/x, and Ibero-American writers in Spanish, English, and other languages of the Americas.

The journal was created in 2004 with the goal of sustaining quality publishing across languages and to support literary creation and exchange on topics that are fundamental to contemporary culture across the Americas. Since then, the journal has published bilingual, multilingual, and monolingual issues yearly.
