Lennon reviews for the journal Shakespeare and the TLS amongst others. She is a member of the BSA’s education committee, a Fellow of the English Association and is on the editorial board for the journal English. The international ‘Shakespeare, Race & Pedagogy’ education initiative was founded by Wendy in 2019, and she project managed an ERC funded program at the University of Oxford which received the 2022 Vice-Chancellor’s Innovation and Engagement award. Following her undergraduate English degree at Royal Holloway, University of London and University of Exeter PGCE, Wendy was an English teacher for a decade.
