Book Series and Journals
The paper series Hispanic Issues was founded at the University of Minnesota in 1985 and has been published in association with the University of Minnesota Press, Routledge, and, currently, Vanderbilt University Press. The online series was founded in 2004, with its first issue appearing in 2006. The two series share a world-renowned editorial board and an editorial team consisting of Minnesota faculty, highly visible professors at other universities with Minnesota connections, and a rotating number of graduate students who are mentored in the art of publishing. The series are broad in scope and entertain projects in most areas of research in Iberian, Spanish American, and Lusophone studies. The online series also publishes “Debates,” normally either in the form of an edited volume consisting of shorter essays (“think pieces”) on a specific scholarly topic, or as a polemical companion to a book or edited volume that has generated particular interest in the profession.
Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics deals primarily with the linguistic analysis of Hispanic and/or Lusophone languages, which is interpreted broadly so as to include not only Spanish and Portuguese, but also Catalan, Galician, Spanish- and Portuguese-based creoles, and other such areas of investigation. Editor-in-chief Timothy L. Face is a faculty member in the Department of Spanish & Portuguese Studies.
La corónica is a refereed journal published every spring and fall by the Modern Language Association Forum, LLC Medieval Iberian. It publishes groundbreaking articles in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Galician, and Catalan on topics in medieval Iberian cultural studies, literature, and historical linguistics. Devoted to Hispanomedievalism in its broadest sense, La corónica also welcomes scholarship that transcends the linguistic and/or cultural borders of Spanish and explores the interconnectedness of those languages and cultures that coexisted in medieval Iberia. We welcome rigorously researched contributions to our fields from a variety of scholarly perspectives and approaches. All submissions must be critically and methodologically informed, written for our international, medievalist readership. In addition to articles, La corónica features book reviews, special thematic issues, short edited works and translations. The journal also has a blog, La corónica Commons, that offers an online platform to represent and cultivate the field of Ibero-medievialism and its disciplines. This space seeks to foster collaboration and innovative approaches to the study of the medieval literatures of Iberia.
