Diversity at the University

An Inclusive Community

Gregory Heyworth
Associate Professor of English

Gregory Heyworth joins the faculty from the University Mississippi, where he has taught since 2001.

Heyworth is the founder (2010) and director of the Lazarus Project, a nonprofit initiative to recover damaged cultural heritage objects using imaging technologies. The Lazarus Project has digitally restored scores of damaged works and objects in libraries and collections around the world, including the Vercelli Book and the Martellus Map, and has launched major multispectral digitization projects in Chartres, France; Tblisi, Georgia; and Vercelli, Italy.

Heyworth has published and lectured extensively on medieval literary criticism and on his work with the Lazarus Project. His major publications include a monograph, Desiring Bodies (Notre Dame, 2009), and a critical edition, Les Eschéz d’Amours, with Daniel O’Sullivan (Brill, 2013). He currently is preparing a publication, Textual Science and the Future of the Past, with Roger Easton of Rochester Institute of Technology. A work of intellectual history and a practical introduction to the latest technologies and techniques of textual recovery, the book will explore topics such as codicology; paleography; imaging techniques and processing; and the history of the book, manuscripts, and textual science. Heyworth’s digital research has been funded by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training and the National Endowment for the Humanities. #URDiversity #FabFacultyFridays
