We invite essays that analyze the temporal mutability, remixing, and shifting of the meaning and codification of Africa, its cultures, ecologies, and inhabitants in premodern Iberia. We also welcome research notes that dialogue with and elaborate upon keywords related to Africa and Blackness as they’re constructed, imagined, and visualized in premodern Iberia and beyond (e.g., Anglophone, Asian, and Mediterranean contexts). The fundamental goal is to feature rigorous studies that explore, reclaim, and revisit the remixing of Iberian Blackness in its artistic, historiographic, literary, material, and visual modes. Of particular interest are submissions that address medieval contexts as well as the discourses of medievalism that reimagine the special issue’s theme at hand.

Please send an abstract (300 words in English) and a 2-page CV to Nick Jones (nick.jones@bucknell.edu) by 1 November 2020. Article submissions can be in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Catalan (under 8,000 words including notes but not the list of works cited). Every submission will be peer-reviewed. Authors should adhere to the format outlined in the MLA Handbook (8th Edition). For matters of style and formatting, authors should refer to recent issues of La corónica (vol. 47.2 or later). Exactness is the responsibility of the author; accuracy of quotations and citations should be verified before the manuscript is submitted. If the author does not follow the guidelines of the journal, or if there is need for modification in content, submissions will be returned for revision.
