Memorial symposium in honor of Dr. Antonio Candau at Valladolid University in Valladolid, Spain. Dr. Candau was Professor of Spanish at Texas State University (1991-2001), and afterwards at Case Western Reserve University until his death from cancer in 2013. The symposium featured the celebrated novelist about whom Dr. Candau wrote his dissertation, José María Merino. During his address, Mr. Merino announced that he will dedicate his new collection of stories to Dr. Candau's memory. There were also talks by Dr. Catherine Jaffe and Dr. Sharon Ugalde from the Department of Modern Languages.  He is remembered fondly in the department as a fine scholar and a treasured friend and colleague.
