Antonio is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies at Catholic University. He holds a PhD and MA from the University of Oregon and a BA degree from Southern Oregon University. His doctorial dissertation, “The Conundrums of Narrative: Cervantes in the Context of the Crónicas de Indias” attempts to bring a fresh understanding on the reciprocal relationship shared between emerging discourses of the New World and Spain. His inquiry opens onto the unstable and complex literary questions of genre, modes, and subgenres, and thus contributes to recent debates regarding the interrelations between history, literature, and fiction. In 2009, Antonio participated as a Co- coordinator in the “IX Biennial Meeting of the Society for Renaissance and Baroque Hispanic Poetry.” He currently co-chairs the Spanish Club. In his spare time, Antonio can be found enjoying time with his family and friends and pursing his love of flying.
