(Lectures/Talks)

November 9, 2012
Medieval/Renaissance Lecture
"Post-Reformation Women Reading the Saints"
Dr. Mary Beth Long
12pm
Central Library sixth floor parlor

Mary Beth Long received her Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and is currently an Assistant Professor of English at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.

She has worked in manuscript archives in Belgium, Engla, Italy and France, and has published articles in _Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching_, _English Literary Renaissance_, _Milton Quarterly_, and _A Companion to Middle English Hagiography_.

Her current writing projects are a book chapter on teaching Dante's Inferno and an online article about Christine de Pisan and English print culture. Mary Beth moved to Arkadelphia from Louvain-le-Neuve, Belgium, where she finished her dissertation, Reading Female Sanctity: English Legendaries of Women ca. 1200 -1650.

Sponsored by the English Department, the Graduate School, the College of Liberal Arts, and the University Library. This lecture is a part of the Festival of Ideas at the UT Arlington. For information contact Dr. Amy Tigner at atigner@uta.edu or 817-272-2692.

The Festival of Ideas began in 2005 with a generous donation by UT Arlington alumnus Mustaque Ahmed ('81). http://www.uta.edu/libarts/festivalofideas.html In 2007, that support grew into an endowment to further strength the program's ability to offer six events each year to the university academic community and the community at large. These events have included lectures by scholars in History, Linguistics, Middle Eastern Studies, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Political Science, and Physics; presentations by artists and writers about their creative work; and concerts and theatrical performances.

Free and open to all.
