Prof. Dan Terkla earned his bachelor's degree in liberal studies and comparative literature from California State University at Long Beach (CSULB). He was a visiting scholar to Balliol College of Oxford University from 1985-1986, before returning to CSULB to earn his master's degree in medieval studies and then to the University of Southern California for his doctorate in comparative literature and medieval studies.
A recipient of the Kemp Award for Teaching Excellence, Prof. Terkla's classes range from Chaucer and the study of King Arthur to Buddha and the Beat Generation. He is known internationally for his work on medieval maps – such as the Hereford Mappaemundi – and for his scholarly contributions to the study of The Bayeux Tapestry. His published works include co-editing The Bayeux Tapestry: New Interpretations (The Boydell Press, 2009) and New Research on the Bayeux Tapestry: The Proceedings of a Conference at the British Museum (Oxbow Books, 2010).
Prof. Terkla has taken students abroad with IWU before, both in a May Term course dedicated to King Arthur and as director of the 2003 London Program.
