      Darian Corona, In Summer I, 2019, I supervised a graduate student, M.A. candidate in Modern Languages-Spanish, Darian Corona, in an independent study (SPAN 5391). Ms. Corona worked on correcting the transcription of La relación of Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca (1542) that she and her classmates had completed in Fall 2017 as part of an experiential learning project in SPAN 5300 History of the Spanish Language.
