Alexis Wolf – Chawton House Library Fellowship Award

We are thrilled to announce that English and Humanities student Alexis Wolf has been awarded a visiting fellowship at Chawton House Library for 2015-16.

Chawton House Library is an internationally respected research and learning centre for the study of early women’s writing from 1600 to 1830. Set in the quintessentially English manor house that once belonged to Jane Austen’s brother, Edward; Chawton House works in partnership with scholars and universities across the globe.

Dr Gillian Dow, Executive Director at Chawton House Library and Chair of the selection committee, said of the selection process: “our task was tremendously difficult this year and sadly we had to reject many excellent applications…We would like to heartily congratulate those who were accepted and thank once again the literary societies and individuals who sponsored the named fellowships.”

Alexis is supervised by Dr Emily Senior and Dr Luisa Cale. Her current working title is ‘Cosmopolitan networks of Anglophone women writers and travellers both at home and abroad in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries’.

Congratulations Alexis!
