Dean Kenneth Fuld announced today that Michael Ferber, Professor of English and Humanities, has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Lindberg Award, given annually to the outstanding teacher-scholar in the College of Liberal Arts.
In a remarkable record of publication in his field of Romantic poetry, Professor Ferber has written five books and edited two. He has also published a book on literary symbols plus numerous articles, reviews, and translations.
A recipient of a UNH Award for Excellence in Teaching, Professor Ferber has taught courses on Romanticism, the epic tradition, Shakespeare, linguistics and literature, and the history of nonviolent political action, among others. Teaching what a colleague calls an “intimidating expanse of literature,” Professor Ferber has impressed generations of students with his knowledge and enthusiasm.
The annual Gary Lindberg Award was established by the College of Liberal Arts in 1986 in memory of Professor Gary Lindberg of the Department of English. Professor Lindberg was an exceptional scholar and outstanding teacher whose dedication and service to the University of New Hampshire as well as the wider community exemplified the highest academic standards and ideals.
