In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • From the Editor

With volume 44.2 our readers will see that La corónica is now publishing abstracts of our articles in print. We hope this addition will provide added convenience for our readers, and it will certainly improve our visibility online through ProjectMuse, where searchable keywords and abstracts will appear in place of a selection of text, as in previous volumes. The outstanding research and writing our contributors provide deserves the attention of audiences across disciplines, and our partnership with ProjectMuse continues to grow our readership, but we want to do everything we can to strengthen our online presence as well. Fortunately, we can rely on an editorial staff that is much more expert at using social media than I, and we want to encourage our readers to contact us through Facebook, Twitter (@La_coronica), and visit our blog and online resources linked from the La corónica web site ( But there is more we can do.

At the last International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, our Managing Editor, Isidro Rivera outlined a new online platform: La corónica Commons. LLCommons will be a fully collaborative site, with calendars and announcements for conferences and job openings, and it will also serve as an online venue for communications and opinion pieces on teaching and concerns in the field. There are myriad uses for a site of this kind, but its success will ultimately rest on the contributions of our readers, so we hope you will look for LLCommons, coming soon, and hosted directly by the University of Kansas.

I cannot let the Spring volume go to press without acknowledging again the generosity and professionalism of our peer reviewers. So many of our experts to whom I reach out for help are so swamped with teaching, research, and service duties that I cannot imagine they have even ten minutes to read a submission, yet they consistently go beyond providing solid criticism, and take on the extra work of mentoring our new, up-and-coming scholars. I cannot thank our jurors enough for their support, and I personally want to recognize all of them in the list of colleagues who contributed their time and expertise this year: [End Page 1]

As a final acknowledgement, the senior editorial staff joins me in expressing our gratitude Dean David Manderscheid, College of Arts and Sciences, and to Glenn Martínez, Chair of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at The Ohio State University. We also thank Dean Carl W. Lejuez, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Chair of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Jorge Pérez, at the University of Kansas; and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Georgetown University. Without their continued support, this journal could not continue. [End Page 2]
