Alumnus Dr. Mark Rankin awarded National Endowment for the Humanities grant
Dr. Mark Rankin (Ph.D. English, 2007) has received a $159,005 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to run a seminar on "Printing and the Book During the Reformation: 1450–1650." The grant will fund a four-week seminar for 16 higher-education faculty on the history of the production and reception of books during the Reformation. Dr. Rankin was collaborating on the grant with his mentor and friend Dr. John N. King (OSU Emeritus Distinguished Professor of English), until the latter's sudden death earlier this summer.
Professor Chris Highley is helping to administer the grant through OSU's Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
