Abstract

eDitor’ S c olumn In this issue e ThofC omparatist, I decided that we might try something die ff rent. I have had the occasion, as I grow older and my colleagues grow even older, to par- ticipate in variou Fs estschrie ft n oe ff red in their honor. i Th s is a charming custom, where colleagues join together to celebrate the career of one of their own. It is a custom that does not occur oe ft n enough in the States. On too many occasions, a scholar’s retirement is feted in the seminar room ae ft r hours with some punch and cookies or worse, with a dinner of glorie fi d cafeteria food where administrators make lame jokes. When I r fi st learned that Michael Palencia-Roth had retired ae ft r many years at the University of Illinois, I thought it reasonable to use my edito- rial discretion to collect a number of articles in honor of his work. Prof. Palencia- Roth is an eminent comparatist and a valiant soldier in our e fi ld. His work, both scholarly and pedagogically, exemplie fi s the best of our discipline. e Th Board of
