// March 14th, 2014 // Conversion Keeps Happening
A conversation with Ken Krabbenhoft about his conversion to Catholicism. Professor Krabbenhoft grew up in Detroit, got his BA from Yale (’68) and his PhD from NYU in Spanish and Portuguese (’81). Until his retirement in 2013, he was a tenured professor at NYU, specializing in early modern Spanish and contemporary Brazilian and Portuguese literature with emphasis on literary rhetoric, poetry, and mystical theology, and forays into science fiction studies and translation. He has translated the poetry of both St. John of the Cross and Pablo Neruda into English. He and his wife Ferris now live in the Hudson Valley.
