Erick received a $4000 AHSS (Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences) research award from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to conduct preliminary dissertation research in Madrid and Toledo, Spain this summer. He will be taking an advanced Paleography course at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid while doing research on the Latin manuscripts that were at Capitular Library of Toledo in the mid 14th century. His initial goal is to get a better understanding of the nature of the textual communities that existed alongside the composition of the canonical Libro de buen amor (The Book of Good Love).
