English Department welcomes Humboldt scholar
Dr. Steven Rozenski to work on late-medieval devotional and mystical literature

(pug) As of this autumn, the Medieval English Studies section of Göttingen Universitys English Department has the pleasure of hosting Dr. Steven Rozenski of Harvard University. Thanks to a grant of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Dr. Rozenski will be working as a visiting scholar as part of a research team led by Prof. Dr. Winfried Rudolf and Dr. Dirk Schultze. Dr. Rozenskis interest in late-medieval devotional and mystical literature and the connections between England and the European continent in the later Middle Ages and early Renaissance period corresponds well with the research of the Göttingen team. A joint project with Dr. Schultze on the writings of St. Catherine of Siena in late-medieval England is well under way. It aims at the completion of both a monograph and an edition of the relevant texts, alongside the hosting of a conference on the results later next year.

Steven Rozenski, born 1980, studied English Literature at Northwestern University and Theology at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, followed by a Fulbright Scholarship that he spent at the University of Cologne in Germany. He completed his PhD at Harvard University in 2012, where he was subsequently employed as a College Fellow. Dr. Rozenski has recently been appointed to an assistant professorship at the University of Rochester.
