Dr. Mark Rankin has received two National Endowment for the Humanities grants. One, a prestigious three-year Scholarly Editions and Translations grant ($335,000), will fund him and a team of scholars from other institutions to produce critical editions of the non-translation prose writings of William Tyndale (c.1495-1536), the English scholar and exile. These important works are not generally available and have not been properly edited in scholarly editions for more than 165 years.
The second grant ($129,535) will enable Dr. Rankin to co-direct an NEH Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers during Summer 2017. It will convene 18 June - 15 July at the Huntington Library in California, one of the world's most important rare book repositories, and will address "The Formation and Re-formation of the Book: 1450-1650." Dr. Rankin will accept applications from college faculty and advanced graduate students to participate in this program, and participants will receive a stipend funded by NEH.
