Professor Jessica Wolfe Selected as a Long-Term Fellow at the Folger Shakespeare Library

Professor Jessica Wolfe has been selected as one of seven long-term fellows at the Folger Shakespeare Library in 2017-18. She will hold the O.B. Hardison Jr. fellowship, named for a much-beloved UNC professor of Renaissance Literature who received both his BA and MA degrees from our department and, in 1969, left UNC to serve as director of the Folger. Wolfe will be working on a biography of George Chapman, a Renaissance playwright and poet who was also the first English translator of Homer. For more information, visit
