John O. Hodges, PhD, Nantes '66-'67

A year in Nantes led John Hodges to a keen interest in comparative literature and eventually a PhD in Literatures and Religion from the University of Chicago.  Now retired, John spent most of his career as a Professor in the Department of Religion at the University of Tennessee.

"Nantes was the best year of my life.  It gave me the confidence to feel that I could accomplish anything anywhere if I put my mind to it!"
