Geoffrey W. Gust
1146 Anderson Hall
Geoffrey W. Gust earned his Ph.D. in English from the University of York (England). He has been teaching in the English Department of Temple University since 2007, where his primary duties have been to teach the medieval catalog as well as other assorted literature and writing courses. During his tenure at Temple, Dr. Gust has helped to lead the Temple Premodern Studies Colloquium, initiated a Premodern Film Series, and served as Secretary of the Delaware Valley Medieval Association. He is a Chaucerian by trade, and to date his publications have been on Chaucer and/or applications of literary theory to the Middle Ages, the most notable being his book Constructing Chaucer: Author and Autofiction in the Critical Tradition (Palgrave Macmillan Press, 2009). He is currently completing a book-length study of medieval obscenity and what he calls “Chaucerotics”, as well as a trans-historical project that aims to use the lens of “medieval” Native American orality and artifacts as a way to reconsider key aspects of the Western European tradition known as the “Middle Ages.”
