Perhaps you saw the news a few days ago that Dr. Brad Busbee, chair of our Department of English, received the Excellence in Teaching Award from the Southeastern Medieval Association at the organization’s fall meeting in Little Rock.  In addition to his record as a classroom teacher, bringing medieval literature to life for his students, Brad’s scholarship extends to many published works and to serving as co-editor of the Grundtvig Studier:  An International Journal for the Study of Nicolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig.  He will serve as host for Anders Holm, his colleague from Denmark, as a visiting Fulbright scholar at Samford next spring.   

The world is better because of the teaching, service, and scholarship of Brad Busbee.
