Essays on Medieval Spain in Honor of Vicente Cantarino
Essays are now being accepted for a proposed book on Medieval Iberian studies in honor of Professor Vicente Cantarino. Professor Cantarino has contributed greatly to the field of medieval studies with analyses of both medieval Iberian Christian and Muslim literature, linguistics, religious studies, and the visual arts. He has directed numerous M.A. and Ph.D. theses and has served as mentor for many young scholars. He currently teaches in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at The Ohio State University.
Essays will be considered from anyone in the field of Medieval Iberian studies, though special consideration will be given to those who have worked with Professor Cantarino either as colleagues or as former students. We seek papers on a wide variety of topics including, though not limited to: Iberian literature, visual art and architecture, music, linguistics, history, cultural studies, or any other topic related to Spain of the Middle Ages.
Please send abstracts or completed papers, as well as a short biographical sketch, to Kevin R. Poole (SpainMedieval@gmail.com) by August 31, 2009. The Ohio State University Press has expressed interest in this book, though no official contract will be made until essays have been compiled. Per their regulations, papers should be in English and follow Chicago style. Footnotes are preferred, with abbreviated bibliographic citations. Full bibliographic citations should be included at the end of the paper. Papers should be no longer than 9000 words, notes and works cited included. When sending abstracts or papers, please indicate if you are or have been a colleague or student of Professor Cantarino, and where.
