Antonio is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies at The Catholic University of America. He holds a PhD and MA from the University of Oregon, and a BA degree from Southern Oregon University. His research interests examine questions surrounding history and ‘poetry’ (a category that for early moderns included imaginative prose) in Spain and the Americas, with particular focus on Miguel de Cervantes’ the Quixote (1605, 1615) and the Persiles(1617). In addition to his research and teaching interests, Antonio has participated in a number of  important events, including, as a Co-coordinator, the “IX Biennial Meeting of the Society for Renaissance and Baroque Hispanic Poetry.”
