Professor Pastrana 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 the faculty director of the study abroad program in Santander, Spain. Prof. Pastrana-Pérez will be on sabbatical leave during the 2012-13 academic year.
