Sophie Kerr Lecture Series: An Evening with Jonathan Hsy
Date: 4:30pm EST February 26, 2015
Jonathan Hsy is Associate Professor of English at George Washington University.
He specializes in late medieval literature and culture, and his interests span the fields of translation studies, disability theory, and the digital humanities. His first book, Trading Tongues: Merchants, Multilingualism, and Medieval Literature (Ohio State University Press, 2013) examines the work of polyglot urban writers across the late medieval and early Tudor eras.
His current book project, Disability and Life Writing: Transformative Authorship, Then and Now, explores autobiographical writing by medieval authors who identified as blind or deaf.
