Meine Kurzvita

Elizabeth Shipley hails from Olds, Iowa City, Missouri Valley and Lake City, Iowa and Fort Worth, Texas, USA.  She obtained her BA in English, Philosophy and Music at the University of Texas at Austin and her PhD in Comparative Literature of the turn of the 19th/20th century at the State University of New York at Buffalo (PhD thesis: "The Authority of Precision"), with research fellowships at the University of Paris and at the University of Bremen. From 1999 to 2000 she held a post-doctoral research position at the University of Kiel within the Hochschulsonderprogramm III project "Culture Studies und ihre Didaktik unter besonderer Berücksichtigung von Gender-Aspekten und interkultureller Kommunikation" (Renate Haas, dir.)

A full-time lecturer for language and literature in the English Department of the University of Education at Karlsruhe from 2001 until her retirement in 2014, she now continues to teach in the English Department and to do research in fantasy and science fiction. Her teaching career began with composition and "World Masterpieces" courses at the State University of New York at Buffalo as a teaching assistant and has included in over 40 subsequent years of teaching in Germany a broad spectrum of language and literature courses at the Universities of Bremen, Braunschweig, Hanover, Kiel and the PH Karlsruhe as well as EFL in adult education institutes at Bremen, Peine, Braunschweig and Karlsruhe.

Together with Bärbel Turner-Hill, she has been active in organizing PH poetry events (Poetry in the Garden, Sound and Silence) for over two decades. In 2016, the two of them joined Beate Laudenberg of the PH German Dept. and Peter Nick of the KIT Botany Dept., in putting on "Poetry Meets Botany", a Shakespeare in the KIT Botanical Gardens event in commemoration of 400 years of Shakespeare.
