Professor Engel organized and chaired a symposium on "Memory and Mortality in Renaissance England" at The Warburg Institute, Center for Advanced Study, University of London, which brought together renowned experts in early modern literary and cultural studies from the USA, Canada, Australia, England, Wales and France.

While in the United Kingdom he also took part in a plenary panel on "The Early Modern Death Arts" at the University of Kent, in Canterbury. Thanks to an Alderson-Tillinghast Award from the Office of the Provost he will be continuing his research abroad for his book under contract with Routledge Press on the Elizabethan Protestant printer, John Day, at the Canterbury Cathedral Archives and at Lambeth Palace Library (the official library of the Archbishop of Canterbury in London, and the principal repository of records of the Church of England).

In July 2019 he will be in residence and lecturing at Eberhard Karls Universität in Tübingen, Germany.

He is looking forward to sharing relevant aspects of his travels and research with Sewanee students during the academic year 2019-20.
