Elizabeth Dobbs taught courses on rhetoric and historical linguistics, and seminars on Chaucer and other English and European medieval writers. She co-taught a MAP Seminar, “Conceptions of Space and Place in Europe and the Mediterranean, 400-1650,” with Professor Marci Sortor from the History Department and has directed MAPs for the Linguistics Concentration, most recently, “From Wulfila to Theodoric the Great: Translation and Revisions of the Codex Argenteus” (Spring 2010, Nelson Goering, ‘10). She directed numerous independent projects, regularly taught a plus-2 in Old English, and offered the option of reading in Latin, French, and Italian in her advanced courses. In connection with her courses, she developed two websites, Dr. Syntax and JGrimm. Professor Dobbs co-edited a translation and commentary on Aristotle’s Poetics, co-edited a monograph on Aristotle’s theory of mathematics, and has published articles in Studies in the Age of Chaucer and The Chaucer Review. She is currently completing work for a project on Chaucer’s use of a chapter from St. Matthew’s Gospel and beginning research on The Knight’s Tale and Boccaccio’s Teseida. During the fall semester of 2009-10, she taught English 120: Literary Analysis at the Newton Correctional Facility as part of the Grinnell College Prison Program; she returned there for the fall 2010 semester to teach Humanities 101: The Ancient Greek World.
