We seek applicants interested in an interdisciplinary course of study that would
culminate in a thesis analyzing the syntax of the major narrative poem in
sixteenth century England, Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene.
Applicants must qualify for admission to either the M.A. or the Ph.D. program in
English at the University of South Carolina. Ideally they will have a degree
either in literary study with a strong secondary interest in linguistics, or the
reverse. The project supervisors will design with the successful applicant a
program of graduate study leading to proficiency in both fields, in preparation
for the thesis project on syntax.
The University of South Carolina Department of English offers both research and
teaching assistantships to graduate students. Further information about the
graduate program in English may be found at www.cas.sc.edu/engl/grad/index.html.

This solicitation is a collaborative effort involving English Department faculty
affiliated with the Spenser Project and with the Linguistics Program.
South Carolina is one of four American universities collaborating on the Spenser
Project, a research program coordinated by the general editors of a new edition
of the poet's collected works under contract to Oxford University Press. The
project's other goals include the publication of classroom texts and the
creation of an extensive open-access digital archive featuring resources to
support both research and teaching.
The English Department has seven faculty specializing in early modern English
literature: Holly Crocker, Edward Gieskes, Nina Levine, David Lee Miller,
Lawrence Rhu, Esther Richey, Andrew Shifflett.
The Linguistics Program is an interdepartmental program with core faculty in
several departments (Anthropology; English; Languages, Literatures, and
Cultures; Philosophy; and Psychology). The program has four core faculty in the
English Department: Dorothy Disterheft, Stanley Dubinsky, Barbara Schulz, and
