Jonathan Hsy is Associate Professor of English at The George Washington University, and his current interests span translation studies, material culture, and disability theory. His first book, Trading Tongues: Merchants, Multilingualism, and Medieval Literature (Ohio State University Press, July 2013) investigates writing by polyglot urban writers across the late medieval and early Tudor eras. His current book project, Transforming Disability: Authorship and Advocacy in the Middle Ages, turns to authors who self-identify as blind or deaf.
