Professor Jonathan Wilcox awarded Fulbright Scholar Grant
University of Iowa Professor of English Jonathan Wilcox has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar Grant for work on his project, “Viking-Age North-Sea Culture: Exploring Medieval Connections between Iceland and England.” Wilcox will fulfill his grant in Iceland for the fall 2019 semester.
Wilcox will be teaching two courses in medieval literature, culture, and language at the University of Iceland. These courses will serve undergraduates in the Department of English and will also be open to undergraduate and MA students in the Department of Comparative Cultural Studies, which houses the Program in Viking and Medieval Norse Studies. In addition to his classes, Wilcox will give a presentation on his research on medieval culture in a public lecture hosted by the Centre for Research in the Humanities. He also plans to strengthen the relationship between the University of Iceland and the University of Iowa during his fellowship.
