An Evening in the Presence of "Genius" - Dr. Jeffrey Alan Miller, MacArthur Fellow

Please join us on Wednesday, December 4, for “‘By Chance’: Milton, the King James Bible, and Discovery in the Humanities,” a special event celebrating the remarkable achievements of Dr. Jeffrey Alan Miller, Associate Professor of English at Montclair State University.

Earlier this year, Miller was awarded the MacArthur “Genius Grant” for his discovery of the earliest known draft of the King James Bible, yielding new insight into the creative process behind the most widely read work in English literature. Miller came across the manuscript while researching Samuel Ward, a King James translator, in the Sidney Sussex College archives in Cambridge, England.

The implications of Miller’s work have not been lost on the academic community. One New Zealand-based scholar told The New York Times that it was very nearly comparable to unearthing a lost draft by Shakespeare, while other experts characterized the discovery as “perhaps the most significant archival find relating to the King James Bible in decades.”

Now, the Montclair State community can hear all about Miller’s breakthrough find in person. The event will kick off with a lecture and Q&A, followed by a reception where you can mingle with Jeffrey himself. Save your spot today!
