Zachary Hines is Visiting Assistant Professor of English at The Ohio State University, where he specializes in medieval poetry and book history. His archival scholarship, including an in-progress book about books, investigates the confluence of material adaptation and metaphorical discourse in the treatment of medieval manuscripts after the Middle Ages. His recent essay on the history of the Sir Gawain and the Green Knight manuscript is forthcoming in Huntington Library Quarterly, and his first edition, commentary, and translation of a fifteenth-century neo-Latin oration, co-edited with Caitlin Hines, is due out later this year in Humanistica Lovaniensia (HumLov).
