Margaux Delaney


Margaux graduated from Wellesley College in 2020 with honors in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Her research interests deal broadly with tensions between anachronism and modernity in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century romance. In her undergraduate thesis, she tracked mirrors, an object rich in these tensions, through the first part of Mary Wroth’s prose romance The Countess of Montgomery’s Urania

In 2020, she was awarded the Wellesley College Graduate Chandler-Ott Fellowship for her work on early modern French literature.
