Dr. Robert Felkel is a professor in the Department of Spanish at Western Michigan University.
Felkel specializes in medieval and Spanish Golden Age literature, with a concentration on "Don Quijote" by Miguel de Cervantes. A member of the Cervantes Society of America, he has published a number of articles on the Quijote in journals such as Anuario de Letras and Anales Cervantinos, and he has produced an English translation of José Antonio Maravall's "Utopía y contrautopía en el Quijote." He has also published articles on aspects of contemporary Spanish culture and is working on a study of homiletics in the Quijote, as well as a book-length manuscript he provisionally plans to title "A Tour of Don Quijote."
Felkel serves the department as a Spanish undergraduate advisor. He is the recipient of a 2016-17 College of Arts and Sciences’ Faculty Achievement Award in Professional and Community Service.
