Dr. Jeremy Scott Ecke (Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley) is an Assistant Professor of English. He specializes in linguistic approaches to literature, the history and structure of English, and medieval poetics. His current research traces the formal and cultural development of the alliterative tradition from Old and Middle English through Tudor, Victorian, and modern continuations and translations of alliterative verse in British, Scottish, American, and Canadian English. His broader theoretic interests in the intersection of music and poetics include the study of rhythm, meter, rhyme, and alliteration, and his interests in the philosophy of language include research in language pedagogy, non-standard dialects, second language acquisition, and English as a world language.
