Bio

Dr. Kevin Rahimzadeh has taught in the Department of English at EKU since 1997.   He holds a BSFS in International Relations from Georgetown University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Renaissance and Medieval Literature from the University of North Carolina.  Nearly all of Dr. Rahimzadeh’s interests involve the word “early”: he teaches Early World Literature, Early British Literature, The Bible and Other Early Middle Eastern Literatures, and various other courses that soon will be lost to the long-ago, such as Shakespeare and John Milton.
