William P. Weaver awarded prestigious Humboldt Fellowship

William P. Weaver, Associate Professor of Literature in the Honors College, was recently awarded a prestigious Humboldt Fellowship for his scholarship on Renaissance rhetoric and weaver copynote-taking practices. The award, which carries funding for up to 18 months, annually attracts leading international scholars from all disciplines to conduct research at one or more host institutes in Germany. Dr. Weaver will be a guest researcher of two institutes, the Institute for Late Middle Ages and Reformation, at the University of Tübingen, and the European Melanchthon Academy Bretten, in the birthplace of the reformer. There he will research and publish Collected Writings on Rhetoric, volume 2 of the Opera Philosophica of Philip Melanchthon. This volume will include the first modern editions of two of Melanchthon’s major works on rhetoric. As part of his research, Dr. Weaver will consult printed and manuscript copies of six works on rhetoric. He is interested to see what manuscript notes reveal about the teaching of Melanchthon’s rhetoric in the sixteenth century.
