Andy Galloway, Cornell University

Andrew Galloway is professor of English at Cornell University, where he has taught since receiving his PhD and where he teaches and writes mainly about late-medieval literature, with forays into ancient, Renaissance, and nineteenth-century American literature. His work often pursues late-medieval English literature within history in terms of issues of form as well as more traditional historical categories and subjects. Some recent or forthcoming projects focus on medieval economic history and literature, medieval legal history and literature, medieval historical narratives, and the possibilities for constructing a literary biography of the author of Piers Plowman. As well as numerous essays on Chaucer, Gower, and Piers Plowman especially, he has written two monographs, Medieval Literature and Culture, and volume one of the Penn Commentary on Piers Plowman, and has edited several volumes of essays and “companions” on late-medieval literature and translated Gower’s Latin for the TEAMS edition of the Confessio Amantis.
