English professor’s articles accepted in premier journals
Rebecca Stephenson, a ULM assistant professor of English, wrote an article recently accepted in Anglo-Saxon England, the premier journal in her field.
The article, titled “Scapegoating the Secular Clergy: The Hermeneutic Style as a Form of Monastic Self-Definition,” grew out of a paper that Stephenson gave at a conference in Manchester, England during Easter 2005.
The article is about using language to define in-groups and out-groups. In this case, a specific form of Latin distinguished Benedictine monks from other clerics, who did not adhere to such a strict rule.
Stephenson recently learned of a second achievement. Her article entitled, “Aelfric of Eynsham and Hermeneutic Latin: Meatim Sed et Rustica Reconsidered” will appear in volume 16 of the Journal of Medieval Latin.
