I was surprised and very honored to learn today that English Alliterative Verse has won the 2018 English Association Beatrice White Prize for outstanding scholarly work in the field of English literature before 1590.
I have a new essay on David Perry’s blog, How Did We Get into This Mess?, called “What Is Education For? – To Kill a Mockingbird and Medieval Literature.” It’s about Biloxi School District’s decision last month to ban (then partially unban) To Kill a Mockingbird.
I have a guest blog post at Fair Field out today, on the challenges of higher education as a social and ethical project, in the fourteenth century and today. It’s called “What’s the point of learning? Piers Plowman and education today.”
