Elizabeth Grubgeld

Regents Professor of English



Elizabeth Grubgeld’s research has focused on Irish literature and culture after 1880, autobiography, and the interdisciplinary field of Disability Studies. In addition to many peer-reviewed book chapters and journal articles, she has published three books: George Moore and the Autogenous Self: The Autobiographies and Fiction (1994), Anglo-Irish Autobiography: Class, Gender, and the Forms of Narrative (2004), and Disability and Life Writing in Post- Independence Ireland (2019). Her first two books both earned prizes from the American Conference for Irish Studies as outstanding contributions to the field, and her essay on the confluence of Anglo-Irish family autobiography, heritage tourism, and digital design was awarded the Roger McHugh prize for the year’s best article in Irish Studies. She has delivered plenary addresses and participated in research colloquia at universities throughout Europe and the United States. In 2018 she received the Regents Award for Distinguished Scholarship, and in 2015 was honored with the OSU University Service Award in recognition of her efforts to foster the continued development of OSU students and programs.
