Consequences of "the Fall": Growth and Decline in Medieval and Early Modern Literary Culture
Very few aspects of late medieval and early modern literature and culture remain untouched by the Fall, concepts of original sin, and considerations of man's place in a postlapsarian world. Concerns over the state of the soul, right governance and maintenance of the commonweal, and engagement with the natural world were shaded by a need to recoup the loss incurred by the expulsion from Eden.

LGBT*QI Faculty and Staff Diversity
How do we quantify LGBT*QI faculty and staff diversity at universities and colleges? How do we prioritize LGBT*QI diversity in hiring practices without undermining ethical practices regarding privacy? Likewise, how do we support and build community for LGBT*QI university employees without eschewing such mores? How do we provide students with LGBT*QI role models and mentors when such diversity is argued to be invisible? We quantify race and gender (in faulty, binary terms), and yet LGBT*QI diversity lags behind.
