Professor Felkel specializes in medieval and Spanish Golden Age Literature, with a concentration on Don Quijote by Miguel de Cervantes. A member of the Cervantes Society of America, he has published a number of articles on the Quijote in journals such as Anuario de Letras and Anales Cervantinos, and he has produced an English translation of José Antonio Maravall's Utopía y contrautopía en el Quijote. Professor Felkel has also published articles on aspects of contemporary Spanish culture and he is currently working on a study of homiletics in the Quijote, as well as a book-length manuscript he provisionally plans to title A Tour of Don Quijote.
