Dr. Pablo Pastrana-Pérez is a professor of Spanish medieval literature and historical linguistics in the Department of Spanish at Western Michigan University.
His papers and publications to date have focused on 15th and 16th-century texts, particularly the short chivalric narratives. He is finishing a collaborative research project that began between Pastrana-Pérez and the late Catherine Julien (Department of History). The project, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, 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.
