Sarah Neville receives Paul W. Brown Excellence in Teaching Award
The Department of English congratulates Assistant Professor Sarah Neville, one of the recipients of this year’s Paul W. Brown Excellence in Teaching Award. This award, presented annually, celebrates one faculty member from the English Department and one from the History department at The Ohio State University. It was created by Susan E. Brown (BA History, 1968) in honor of her father, Paul W. Brown (BA English, 1937).
Neville teaches in a variety of areas including Renaissance poetry and Shakespeare. She was an assistant editor for The New Oxford Shakespeare and is currently the coordinating editor for Digital Renaissance Editions.
Neville founded Lord Denney’s Players (LDP) in 2014 which, according to their website, demonstrates the value and vitality of student-driven academic theatre. This program is a theatre group made up of students, faculty and alumni who perform research-based productions of English literary texts. The Columbus City Council awarded LDP a Resolution of Expression for their 2018 performance of the 1602 early quarto text of The Merry Wives of Windsor, which was the first full production of this version since the 17th century.
