Personal Statement

J. A. Glenn

I earned the BA degree at Walla Walla College and the MA and PhD degrees at the University of Notre Dame, where I majored in Old and Middle English Literature, with minor concentrations in Medieval Celtic Languages and Literatures and English Historical Linguistics.

I came to the University of Central Arkansas in 1990 as a member of the faculty in English. I now serve as UCA's Associate Provost for Academic Services and Student Success. I am actively engaged in maintaining the university's accreditation as UCA's Accreditation Liaison Officer to the Higher Learning Commission.

My research focuses on textual scholarship through my work with the early Scots prose works of the Hay Manuscript. The Scottish Text Society published my edition of Gilbert Hay's Buke of the Ordre of Knychthede and Buke of the Gouernaunce of Princis in 1993 and Buke of the Law of Armys in 2005; I expect my scholarly attention to be engaged for the next several years in further study of the French backgrounds of Hay's texts and in coming to understand relationships among the manuscript's three texts. As a medievalist, I maintain teaching and writing interests in an interdisciplinary array of concerns, including medieval canon and civil law, the alliterative and chivalric traditions in Middle English, and – though neither a theorist nor a philosopher – in the philosophy of literature.
