Professor of English
After completing her B.A. at University of Michigan and M.A. and Ph.D. at Case Western Reserve University, Dr. Naomi Saslaw studied at Harvard as a postdoctoral visiting fellow. She also studied at Oxford and Columbia Universities. In addition to her work in Anglo-Saxon, Chaucer and Shakespeare, she earned a J.D. at Cleveland Marshall College of Law where she served on Law Review and began work on biomedical ethics. A grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities provided an opportunity to participate in a year-long program in biomedical humanities run jointly by Hiram College and North East Ohio University College of Medicine. Putting theory into practice, she has served on the Medical Ethics Committee at Med-Central Hospital in Mansfield, Ohio. In recent years she has pursued an interest in modern Jewish literature.
