“Holding the Hanes Professorship continues to give me the opportunity to explore new areas of scholarship, to serve as a mentor for my graduate and undergraduate students, and to meet with my colleagues across the country. My work as a teacher and scholar has been enhanced by the professorship, and I am very grateful to the Hanes family for all the wonderful support they have given the university over many, many years.”


John McGowan, John Wesley and Anna Hodgin Hanes Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature
