Dr. Pablo Pastrana-Pérez is associate professor of Spanish in the Department of Spanish at Western Michigan University.
Pastrana-Pérez is a specialist in Spanish medieval literature and historical linguistics. His papers and publications to date have focused on fifteenth and sixteenth-century texts, particularly the short chivalric narratives. Currently, he is finishing a collaborative research project that began between professor Pastrana and the late Catherine Julien (History). The project involves a scholarly edition of 61 documents pertaining to Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca's exploration of the South-American interior between 1540 and 1544. The project has been funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. He is a member of the Medieval Institute Board and serves as faculty director of the undergraduate study abroad program in Santander, Spain.
