Pioneers often must struggle. The pioneering and tremendously independent spirit of 17th century Mexican poet Sor Juana continues to inspire and captivate today. This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, join Emily Auerbach, in for Jean Feraca, and her guests for a discussion of the life and work of Sor Juana.

Jean A. Stuntz received her PhD in History from the University of North Texas. In 2001 she joined the faculty of West Texas A&M University where she teaches Spanish Borderlands, Texas, US Women’s, and Mexican American history. Her first book, Hers, His, and Theirs: Community Property Law in Spain and Early Texas (Lubbock: Texas Tech University Press, 2005) looks at the development of married women’s property rights in Spain and how those were brought to Texas by the Spanish. This speech was to the groups Los Béxareños, descendants of the original settlers of San Antonio. Topics include the book, the history of San Antonio, and some of the myths concerning Hispanic contribution to US history.

My book Between Worlds: Interpreters, Guides, and Survivors was published by Rutgers University Press in 1994. It contains the career biographies of nineteen women and men who served as interpreters of their languages and cultures for outsiders. The opening chapter is "To the Valley of Mexico: Doña Marina, 'La Malinche.'" I was subsequently asked by the editors of Indian Women of Early Mexico to contribute a different essay about doña Marina to their volume. This gave me an opportunity to craft a more interpretive study of what the experience might have meant to her. Since the publication of the two books, I have frequently given public presentations on "The Many Faces of Malinche" in the USA and in other countries. In March 2005 I gave it in Prague on the occasion of the premiere of an new opera La Conquista by Italian composer Lorenzo Ferrero. Ferrero's concept for this opera was that the Spaniards should sing in 16th-century Spanish, and the Aztecs should sing in Classical Nahuatl, with the character of Marina interpreting the opera to the audience. Ferrero composed the music, and he and I together wrote the tri-lingual libretto in Spanish, Nahuatl, and English.
Much of my career has been devoted to the study of the indigenous languages of Latin America. I compiled An Analytical Dictionary of Nahuatl, which was published in 1983. R. Joe Campbell and I also created a course book, Foundation Course in Nahuatl Grammar. I was a senior research scientist at the Linguistics Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin until 2000, when I took early retirement from the university in order to devote full time to writing. I have just concluded a five-year project and am preparing to take up a deferred one, Luciana's Worlds, a history of Mexico from 1898 to 1965 as perceived by a gifted and beautiful Milpalteña, doña Luz Jiménez.
