Submit tributes in memory of Antonio Candau, former Spanish professor

Case Western Reserve University community members are invited to submit short tributes in memory of Antonio Candau, the former longtime chair of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and Spanish professor. Candau who was an avid soccer fan and Spanish film connoisseur, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in September 2013 at the age of 51.

Linda Ehrlich, associate professor of Japanese, will collect the tributes. She asks that they be emailed to by April 6.

Stories will be translated into Spanish and presented at a ceremony held in his honor at the University of Valladolid in Valladolid, Spain, a city about a two-hour drive northwest from Madrid. Candau completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Valladolid and met his wife Cynthia there.

The ceremony will feature academic presentations from seven speakers in addition to the reading of the submitted tributes. Ehrlich says that Candau’s wife and children will be in attendance at the event.

Speakers will include researchers from Texas State University, Arizona State University, University of Valladolid, New York University, University of Iowa and Princeton University.
