This essay looks back at exemplary moments of the first 100 years of Hispania and uses this history to glean ideas for the future of the journal. The publication’s fate has been tied to that of the United States, its world languages programs, and US understandings of the Iberian world. I examine the terms “Hispania” and “Hispanic” as means of commemorating the broad, interdisciplinary scope for the journal and advocating for its continued expansion. Diasporas are examined as a growing point of contact between the Americas. The insights of the Global South are presented as an approach that contributes to a more diverse and democratic future for the journal.
