Humanities professor Bill Engel, author of five books on intellectual history and literary studies, has a new book contract with Cambridge University Press for The Renaissance Arts of Memory: An Archival Companion of Images and Texts.  Oxford literary critic Emma Smith has commented in a review of Bill's Chiastic Designs in English Literature: "Engel's critical vocabulary comes from Cassirer and Panofsky, and his aesthetic categories from Virgil, Ovid, and Aristotle." We all anxiously await Bill's latest project due out Winter 2015.
