    Sean McDowell, associate professor of English, recently published three essays. “Stealing and Being Stolen: A Distinction Between Sacred and Profane Modes of Transgressive Desire in Early Modern England” appeared in the edited collection, Negotiating the Sacred and Profane in Seventeenth-Century Literature. The journal American Notes and Queries published “Richard Crashaw’s Poem on Matthew 22 and the Ars Memorativa.” McDowell’s third essay, “Holiness as a Psychological State in Herbert’s Briefe Notes on Valdesso’s Considerations,” appears in the current issue of the George Herbert Journal. All three essays are part of McDowell’s continuing work on early modern phenomenology in the interpretation of literary texts.
