  Virginia Tech Center for the Humanities Director Finalists Open-Forum Presentation - Gary Taylor  
(Academic)

The Open-Forum Presentation introduces Gary Taylor, the second of three finalists for the position of founding director of the Virginia Tech Center for the Humanities. Taylor, the author or editor of 26 books, is the George Matthew Edgar Professor of English and a Distinguished Research Professor at Florida State University, where he became the founding director of the interdisciplinary History of Text Technologies program. Taylor served as general editor of the Oxford editions of Shakespeare's Complete Works, which, upon its publication in 1986, helped sharpen scholarly interest in the Bard's role at the intersection of literature and theater arts. He also edited the collected works of "the other Shakespeare," Thomas Middleton, a volume that won the Modern Language Association's biennial prize for a Distinguished Scholarly edition and the Emily Dietz Award for Outstanding Publication in Early Modern Studies. Taylor earned his doctorate in English from the University of Cambridge. There will be a reception immediately following the presentation.
