submissions for a special issue guest-edited by Esperanza Alfonso
(Universidad Complutense-Madrid) and Ross Brann (Cornell University). In the

thirteenth century, Hebrew and Romance literatures burgeoned alongside
Arabic and created the distinctive hybrid culture invoked in the name *

influences between cultures and languages in the aforementioned period,
papers that reveal the legacy of this hybrid culture for later literary
production, or those that critique later representations of *al-Andalus* in
literary or historical texts. Papers should follow the Chicago Manual of
Style, contain a minimum of 6,000 words, and be comparative in nature.
