Acknowledgments

This book was made possible by many individuals, groups, and organizations, to whom we owe our deepest thanks. First and foremost, we would like to thank the series editors, Ana María Manzanas Calvo and Jesús Benito Sánchez. Their time, patience, editing, advice and support have (always) been invaluable. We are also deeply grateful for their friendship, mentorship, and encouragement in all of our endeavors. We also wish to thank all of the contributors for their patience and enthusiasm for a project that will offer new insights into the notion of latinidad. We also thank Paula Barba for her assistance in this publication as well as Gwyn Fox, who is a master copy-editor and has a unique talent of creating a unified voice among many authors.

Amanda would like to thank Clara Keating and Isabel Caldeira at the University of Coimbra for allowing space, time, and encouragement to write in peace, and for their warm welcome to beautiful Portugal. She would also like to thank Kristie Knockleby who accompanied her to Coimbra and took care of her infant twins while she was writing and editing. She also thanks her three children, Laszlo, Gabriel, and Nicolás who bring her joy, hope, and the deepest love. Without them, her life would not be complete. And most importantly, she would also like to thank her husband, Patrick, who has always supported her personally and in her career. He sacrifices so much for her and for their family, and her dreams and success would not be possible without his love and support.

Luisa would like to give special recognition to Viorica Patea, a dearest friend and colleague, for her continuous support and intellectual guidance throughout her academic journey. She would also like to thank her husband, Carlos, and her children, Irene and Daniel, for their patience, support and unconditional love.
