BRINGING THE GLOBE TO ALABAMA
A privately endowed program named for a longtime faculty member, the Strode Program promotes the study of early modern British literature and culture. The endowment provides for symposia and lectures by distinguished scholars and financial support for graduate study at The University of Alabama. The intellectual work and educational activities sponsored by the Strode Program benefit not only our students and faculty but also the broader University of Alabama and West Alabama community.
Focus: The Graduate Student
The intellectual work and educational activities sponsored by the Strode Program, from fellowships to lecture series, from the Strode Seminar to summer research awards, converge upon a single focus: the graduate student. We have a lively and talented group of students specializing in English Renaissance literature in preparation for careers in colleges and universities, or for other professional or personal goals. The faculty is committed not only to teaching students but also to mentoring them, fostering a community of future scholars.
