GARY KNOPPERS LEAVING PENN STATE
Gary Knoppers, Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and Jewish Studies, will be leaving Penn State this summer. Gary’s distinguished scholarship in the field of Biblical studies has won him the John A. O'Brien Professorship of Theology at Notre Dame University. He and his wife, Laura Knoppers, who has been appointed as Professor of English at Notre Dame, will take up their positions in the fall of 2014. We congratulate Gary and Laura on their new appointments, and wish them well in their new positions. Though we will inevitably miss Gary and his valued experience and advice, we are pleased that he will maintain his connection to Penn State as Emeritus Professor of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and Jewish Studies.
