Scotland Long is a PhD candidate in Romance Languages at the University of Pennsylvania, where his work focuses on the literature of the Iberian peninsula in the Middle Ages, including works in Latin, Arabic, and romance vernaculars. He is currently writing a dissertation on the use of rhetorical examples in a wide array of medieval genres, including the commentaries of Averroes on the Poetics, the Arbor Scientiae of the polymath Ramon Llull, and numerous works in Medieval Spanish. Before crossing over to medievalism, he studied Classics at Bates College where he read extensively the work of Ovid and Lucretius, and shortly after participated in the Paideia Institute's "Medieval Latin in Paris" program.
