The KFLC and La corónica: A Journal of Medieval Hispanic Languages, Literatures & Cultures will organize sessions devoted to the presentation of scholarly research in the area of Medieval Hispanic Languages, Literatures and Cultures.

Be sure to include the heading SPECIAL LA CORONICA MEDIEVAL HISPANIC SESSIONS at the beginning of the abstract if you would like it to be included in the special medieval sessions organized by the La corónica editors, Professors Jonathan Burgoyne ( and Emily C. Francomano (
