Elizabeth Anderson holds a PhD in Literature, Theology and the Arts and English Literature (2011) and a MLitt in Modernities (2007) from the University of Glasgow and a BA in English from Kenyon College (2001). She held a research fellowship at the University of Stirling before taking up a post as Lecturer in English Studies at the University of Aberdeen in 2017.
My primary research area is early to mid-twentieth century women's writing, religion and spirituality and feminist theory.
I also have a teaching and research interest in anglophone children's literature (mid-nineteenth century to the present).
I would welcome enquires to supervise phd students in the following areas: modernism, late nineteenth and twentieth century women's writing, feminist theory, children's literature, life-writing, literature and religion.
My current research project explores spirituality and things in the work of four modernist women writers: Mary Butts, Virginia Woolf, H.D. and Gwendolyn Brooks.
I teach on the following courses:
EL1513 Controversial Classics
EL1536 Rethinking Reading
EL30FF Modernism: Make it New
EL30JS Anglo-American Children's Literature
EL45JA Wandering Women: Literature, Place and Environment
I also contribute to the MLitt in English Literary Studies.
