This roundtable responds to a fundamental question posed by Russell A. Berman: "Today's graduate students will become tomorrow's teachers of undergraduates: Do we have the right curricula in place?" Panelists will work together with the audience to try to identify literary, linguistic, cultural, and professional items that are indispensable for graduate education in Spanish.
