The April 2010 American Historical Review only has two reviews for us:
Links to reviews require subscription.
The Spring 2010 Renaissance Quarterly has some reviews of Spanish history and literary criticism.
The policy here at EM Spanish History Notes is, generally, not to repeat things found on the ASPHS website or Espora; anyone who looks at this site will undoubtedly also be looking there.
However, it’s worth it to break that rule in order to celebrate laurels and accolades for our colleagues. So congratulations to the co-winners of the 2009 “Best First Book” (past three years):
The Journal of Early Modern History 14 (2010), vol. 1-2 features a special issue on “The Social History of the Sea,” with several features on the Iberian world.

Sorry that the RSA post, below, was so garbled. The WordPress software is not good, apparently, at handing lots of cut-and-paste at one time. I had many, many more panels in the post, but they got cut off. Oh well.
Anyway, there will be no more posts for 10 days or so as I’m going to Venice myself.
Okay, the program for the Renaissance Society of America meeting next week in Venice is something like 700 pages long, so I’m not going to scour it for every possible paper that might be of interest to us. But I will mention full panels on the Iberian world. Here they are:
