Please join me in congratulating Angelica Duran, professor of English, comparative literature, and religious studies, for publishing a new book on John Milton and being elected president of the Milton Society of America.
Angelica’s sixth book, Milton among Spaniards (University of Delaware Press/Virginia Press, 2020), published in April. David Gies of the University of Virginia described it as “a major achievement, a wholly original contribution to our knowledge of Milton and an excellent meditation on his lasting impact in Spain.”
The Milton Society of America is an affiliate organization of the Modern Language Association and the Renaissance Society of America. Angelica was voted in as president in April.
Congratulations, Professor Duran!

College of Liberal Arts
Since my introduction to Purdue Liberal Arts, I have been impressed by the depth and volume of accomplishment among members of the faculty and staff. To that end, this series will celebrate the achievements of our colleagues. When one of us earns recognition, it reflects positively upon each individual, each department, the whole of the College, and the entirety of the University. Collectively, we all benefit from the success of our colleagues, and here, together, we will celebrate the accolades that move this College to new heights of excellence.
