La BloGoteca de Babel

Érase una vez un joven estudiante que se puso a escribir una redacción asignada por su profesora. Érase una vez una profesora de español presentando la asignatura de la misma redacción a su clase. Érase una vez dos personas, ese mismo estudiante y dicho profesor, que se preguntaron a la vez, ¿Para quién? Y a continuación, ¿Para qué?

Demasiadas veces a lo largo de los años, nos hemos encontrado escribiendo redacciones dirigidas y destinadas a los ojos de una sola alma. Esta misma—nuestra querida profesora—se encuentra leyendo, juzgando, calificando y al final lamentablemente tirando—sea dicha redacción una de calidad normal, pésima o sobresaliente—ese trabajo en la canasta del olvido. Una situación lamentable, pero, en fin, en las circunstancias de antaño, quizá sin remedio. Hoy día, con la ayuda de la tecnología de las redes, los blogs y los wikis, ya no existe por qué escribir y corregir hacia “la nada”. El trabajo—sangre, sudor, (sonrisas) y lágrimas—del estudiante debe y puede servir de algo. Y la profesora ya lo puede y lo debe enseñar con la intención de que el estudiante, a través de su trabajo, entre en diálogo más allá de su despacho u oficina, y de que cada redacción sea vista como una verdadera comunicación con un publico de iguales.

Esta es la intención de la BloGoteca de Babel, una revista de trabajos estudiantiles, trabajos una vez escritos solo para una clase, para una profesora o profesor, pero que, por su alta calidad ahora tendrán una voz y un público mucho más amplio. En este primer volumen se ven trabajos escritos de estudiantes de una variedad de experiencias con el español, desde redacciones preparadas para SPAN 3520 hasta un dossier de trabajos finales de estudiantes graduados llevando a cabo investigaciones desde España. En cada uno de los trabajos, el estudiante puede encontrar ejemplos de las mejores ideas y la mejor expresión de ellas de los estudiantes del año académico 2009-2010 en BGSU.

Pero mucho más allá que una muestra de lo mejor, nuestra esperanza es que con la colocación de estos ensayos se inicie una manera de acercamiento a la investigación de la literatura, cultura y lengua española en BGSU. Esperamos que la investigación por parte de estudiantes a todos niveles del español en BG sea parte de un diálogo que transcienda los límites del tiempo y del espacio. Con la tecnología, en particular la de los blogs, esperamos crear un diálogo mucho más allá de la “revista tradicional”. Por ende, invitamos no sólo a lectura de los ensayos seleccionados, sino a compartir sus comentarios y criticas. Y luego comentarios y críticas de los comentarios. Anticipamos así, una revista que funciona tanto como una revista tradicional como además un espacio “wiki” de desarrollo de ideas.

En fin, esperamos la colaboración de todos con la esperanza de que las conversaciones desarrolladas en nuestras aulas y nuestros ordenadores no terminen nunca.

Y ahora, a leer,
Pedro Porbén
