Associate Professor Office: 240 Park Hall

Dr. Eberle (Associate Professor; Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles,1994) specializes in Romantic Literature, Nineteenth-Century Studies, and Feminist Literary Criticism. Her first book, Chastity and Transgression in Women's Writing, 1792-1897: Interrupting the Harlot's Progress (Palgrave Publishers, 2002), explores representations of sexual transgression and feminist activism in a range of nineteenth-century texts written by women. She has also published essays on Amelia Opie (Studies in the Novel 1994) and British Abolitionist poetry (Romanticism and Women Poets: Opening the Doors of Reception 1999). Dr. Eberle has edited Women and Romanticism, 1790-1830 (Routledge, 2006), a five volume collection of primary materials inclusive of pedagogical tracts, poetry, periodical essays, and novels and is currently at work on a cultural biography of Amelia Opie (1769-1853), a poet, novelist and abolitionist.

Dr. Eberle teaches a range of courses on the Undergraduate and Graduate level. Her undergraduate courses have included courses on Romantic Literature, Jane Austen, Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Women Writers, Virginia Woolf, and the Novel of the Romantic Period. Graduate courses have included surveys of both Earlier and Later Romantic Writers, as well as seminars on the "Romantic Novel," "Jane Austen," and "Austen, the Brontes, Gaskell, and Woolf."

Dr. Eberle is co-chair with Dr. Casie LeGette, of the Georgia Colloquium in Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Literature. For more information, please visit the colloquium's website at :
