Medieval Studies DUG

This year's Department Undergraduate Group leader is Pablo Caban-Bonet

A Mellon-Mays Fellow last year Pablo is concentrating in Medieval Studies with a focus on Late Antiquity. He is interested in the rise of Christianity in the Western Middle Ages through the lens of his faith and ethnicity. Specifically, his project will examine the Confessions of St. Augustine. This summer, Pablo began his research with his Faculty mentor Professor Joseph Pucci. After graduation he hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in Medieval Studies.

Since all the events this year are planned to be virtual, please let Pablo know that you are interested to join.
