 - Scott DeVries, who teaches Spanish and Spanish-American literature in Manchester’s Department of Modern Languages, has had a second book released. Brill of Leiden, the Netherlands, has released Creature Discomfort: Fauna-criticism, Ethics and Representation of Animals in Spanish-American Fiction and Poetry. Devries’ first book, A History of Ecology and Environmentalism in Spanish-American Literature, was published by Bucknell University Press in 2013. DeVries’ second book documents the way in which certain texts from Spanish-American literature anticipate concerns from present debates in animal studies.
