Ritchie Kendall recently retired from UNC. While at UNC, he coordinated the selection of Honors Carolina students and was responsible for Honors course programming and extracurricular activities. He is an award-winning English professor who served as Director of Undergraduate Studies, Director of Graduate Studies, and Assistant Chair of the Department of English and Comparative Literature. His studies examines a range of emergent economic activity in London in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries as represented in the city comedies of Dekker, Heywood, Jonson, Middleton, and others. Changing modes and sites of production and distribution of goods, shifts in concepts of credit and exchange, and alterations in the patterns of accumulating and dispersing wealth are among the areas investigated.
Dr. Kendall earned his undergraduate degree from Yale, and then master’s and PhD degrees at Harvard.
Professor Emeritus Kendall will serve as enrichment lecturer for our Journey to Cornwall alumni trip in 2021.
