    Dr. Elisabeth Aiken, Ph.D.

    Assistant Professor of English

    My husband and I moved to Florida from western North Carolina in 2005, when I joined the faculty of Saint Leo. I regularly teach a variety of courses in the English discipline, including composition, Introduction to Literary Studies, and Foundations of American Literature I and II. I've also enjoyed teaching several special topics courses, including courses on the literature of the Grand Tour, Irish studies, and the hallowed tradition of ghost stories in England and Scotland. Other research interests include the application of ecocriticism to Southern and southern Appalachian literature, as well as interdisciplinary research into local history. Outside the classroom, I spend as much time outside as possible, paddling, hiking, and camping with my husband and our two sons.
