UMD Presents Noted Scholar on Medieval and Renaissance Literature
Dr. Derrick Pitard to Speak on the "Canterbury Tales"


UMD's English Department will host Chaucer scholar Dr. Derrick Pitard on Friday, March 23, at 4 p.m. in the Tweed Museum of Art. Dr. Pitard will present the second annual Jankofsky Medieval and Renaissance Lecture titled "I Will No Longer Play with Thee: Dialogue and Vernacular Authority in the Canterbury Tales". Dr. Pitard teaches Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania.

The Lecture Series is named in honor of Klaus P. Jankofsky, retired Professor Emeritus, who inspired many students in Medieval and Renaissance studies at UMD. The Jankofsky Essay Award for the best student paper on a medieval or renaissance topic will be presented prior to Dr. Pitard's talk.

The lecture is free and open to the public. There will be a reception following the program.
