Neag visiting professor to give talk
March 9, 1998

Ronnie Jack, the first Neag Distinguished Visiting Professor in the English Department, will present a lecture on "The Lost Scottish Renaissance" on Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Konover Auditorium of the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. Jack is former chair of the Department of English at Edinburgh University in Scotland.

Author of numerous articles and books, Jack is currently writing a biography of Sir James Barrie, noted dramatist of Edwardian London and author of Peter Pan. While at UConn, Jack is teaching an undergraduate course in Scottish literature and a graduate course on spiritual journeys.

The Lynn Wood Neag Distinguished Visiting Professorship in British Literature is the result of a generous gift by Raymond Neag, '56, in memory of his wife.
