Wolfson College are delighted to announce that our Supernumerary Fellow Pamela Clemit received the Keats-Shelley Distinguished Scholar Award for 2017 at the Modern Language Association, Philadelphia, on 6 January 2017.
Presented annually by the Keats-Shelley Association of America, this is a highly prestigious award and recognised Professor Clemit’s outstanding contribution to the study of late 18th- and early 19th-century literature – a contribution most recently exemplified by her OUP edition of The Letters of William Godwin, 6 vols. in progress. Volume I: 1778-1797 appeared in 2011; Volume II: 1798-1805 appeared in 2014. This is an international collaborative project, of which Professor Clemit is the General Editor.
The Keats-Shelley Association of America emerged from a coalition of scholars, critics, bibliophiles, editors, students, teachers – all engaged with the brilliant accomplishments of Keats and Shelley. Previous recipients of the award include Neil Fraistat, Kenneth R. Johnston, Marjorie Levinson, Morton D. Paley, and Christopher Ricks.
Please join us in congratulating Professor Clemit.
