You are invited to attend the College of Arts and Sciences Professors of Distinction Lectures and Reception, Tuesday, Sept 16, 4-5pm, in Old Main Chapel. (Reception following at 5pm in the CU Heritage Museum in Old Main.)
CU Boulder’s College of Arts & Sciences has named Jeff Cox Professor of Distinction for 2014. The honor is reserved for scholars and artists of national and international distinction who are also recognized by their College peers as teachers and colleagues of exceptional talent.
“That he is a prolific and influential scholar and powerful teacher would be accomplishment enough; that he does these things while serving as Vice Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor is genuinely astounding,” says English faculty member David Glimp. “The honor is long overdue.”
Jeff Cox specializes in English and European Romantic literature, cultural theory and cultural studies. He joined the faculty at CU-Boulder in 1998 as the director of the Center for the Humanities and the Arts, where he served until 2006. He was on the faculty of Texas A&M from 1981 until 1998. He received a B.A. from Wesleyan University in 1975 and a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in 1981.
