Congratulations to Hannah Wojciehowski for receiving the Leslie Waggener Centennial Teaching Fellowship for the 2017-18 academic year! This award recognizes outstanding teaching in foreign language instruction and in honors courses. She will receive a $5,000 honorarium with the award.

Dr. Wojciehowski is an early modernist and literary theorist who specializes in the history of subjectivity and is currently the Arthur J. Thaman and Wilhelmina Doré Thaman Professor of English at the University of Texas and an Affiliate of the Program in Comparative Literature. Hannah’s interests include the history of subjectivity, group identity formation, globalization and transculturation, sixteenth-century travel literature, cognitive criticism, and women writers in early modern Europe. Her book Group Identity in the Renaissance World analyzes the unconscious dynamics of group identity formation in a global context, offering a new paradigm for the study of early modernity.
