Summer Kudos

It's that lazy time of the summer--the spring semester has ended and the humidity is high. But we won't let humidity get in the way of expressing our pride in our faculty and students. For your summer reading pleasure, three kudos:

Prof. Jonathan's Hsy's book, Trading Tongues: Merchants, Multilingualism, and Medieval Literature (Ohio State University Press, 2013) has made Library Journal's list of recent scholarly bestsellers in Language Arts.
