Born in Valdepeñas, Spain, Victor Roncero-López is a graduate of Spanish and American universities. He was Assistant Professor at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) and at High Point, North Carolina. Since 1995, he has been Associate Professor of Spanish Golden Age Literature and has taught at Stony Brook for over a decade. His research and published papers focus on humanist issues, historiography, the Picaresque novel, Petrarchist poetry, Bufoonesque literature, and Autos Sacramentales. He has edited works from medieval Cancionero poetry, Fernando de Herrera, Quevedo, Carlos García, and Calderón. His study of Quevedo's historiography was the first critical approach to the subject and received excellent international reviews. His recent study on humanism examines humanist trends in 16th- and 17th-century Europe through the eyes of Quevedo with a philological approach. He belongs to GRISO, a prestigious Golden Age research team, and is General Editor and Founder of La Perinola: Revista de Investigación Quevediana. He frequently teaches summer courses in European universities
