Elizabeth Fenton, Assistant Professor of English, received her B.A. in English and Women's Studies from the University of Vermont and her M.A. and Ph.D. in English from Rice University. She comes to UVM from Loyola University, Chicago.

Dr. Fenton's research focuses on literary and political texts of the early nineteenth-century United States. Her current book project, Religious Liberties, examines anti-Catholicism's formative importance to the notions of individual freedom and pluralism that underpin the U.S.'s liberal democratic tradition. She teaches courses in nineteenth-century fiction and poetry, as well as in colonial American literature.
