Brad Ellis is associate professor of Spanish and has been at St. Norbert College since 2002. He teaches at all levels of the Spanish curriculum and specializes in literature, culture and society of early modern Spain.

His research interests include Old Christian-Morisco relationships in early modern Spain and their literary representation in the Spanish picaresque novel and the works of Miguel de Cervantes and María de Zayas. Most recently he has published articles on Christian/Muslim hybridity in María de Zayas’s La esclava de su amante, and representations of Morisco women in Alonso Jerónimo de Salas Barbadillo’s picaresque novel, La hija de Celestina. He is currently working on an entry on Moriscos in the works of María de Zayas for the Routledge Encyclopedia of the Renaissance World, and an article on Moriscos and religious identity in Book Two of Cervantes's Don Quijote de la Mancha.

Professor Ellis regularly presents his work at national and international conferences and has presented at Georgetown University, Cambridge University, the University of Lisbon and the University of Valencia. He is a lifetime member of the Cervantes Society of America and served on the Executive Board of GEMELA (Grupo de Estudios sobre la Mujer en España y Las Américas, pre-1800) as Managing Director from 2007 to 2022.
