Dr. Carlos Ojeda Aureus (1947-2024)

The DECL mourns the passing of Dr. Carlos Ojeda Aureus (December 23, 1947 – April 23, 2024). Professor Aureus devoted his life to sharing the knowledge he acquired from decades of writing and research, and he will be fondly remembered as an esteemed professor, a generous mentor, and a cherished colleague.

A keen observer of shifting social tides, Sir Caloy expressed his astute observations and personal reflections in Nagueños, a collection of short fiction set in his hometown of Naga City on the precipice of the 21st century. He led a simple life and wished to be remembered as a humble public school teacher.

The Department of English and Comparative Literature invites everyone to celebrate his life and legacy through a memorial mass to be held on April 29, 2024 at 6:00PM at the Parish of the Holy Sacrifice, UP Campus, Diliman, Quezon City. May he rest in peace.
