Robin Bower is an Associate Professor of Spanish and Comparative Literature at Penn State Beaver. A medievalist, Bower's primary research area is the emergence of vernacular romance verse in the Spanish Kingdoms of medieval Spain, particularly as those forms engage with inherited Latin traditions through remembrance, contestatory citation, and disavowal. Her interest in the politics of cultural memory extends to contemporary texts, as well as to this project. Her book, Making Saints of the Past in Medieval Iberia, is currently under review.
