Stephanie Harzewski

Senior Lecturer

Stephanie Harzewski teaches contemporary British and American literature, and, more generally, British literature since 1800, as well as female sexuality and popular culture. She taught the first online course of the department and has contributed regularly to eUNH’s initiatives, whether piloting software or participating as a panelist in course development and pedagogy-related forums.

Her book, Chick Lit and Postfeminism (University of Virginia Press, 2011), received critical acclaim internationally and was a bestseller (top-ten ranking in’s Nonfiction—Women Writers category); this project was supported by grants and fellowships from the Kosciuszko Foundation, AAUW, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, and the Romance Writers of America. She most recently completed a book-length e-reader's guide to Oscar Wilde's, The Picture of Dorian Gray, intended for high school students and English teachers (forthcoming in late 2016).

Ms. Harzewski has published in peer review journals such as Contemporary Women’s Writing, The Age of Johnson, The Eighteenth-Century Novel, and Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies, and several edited book volumes. She has served as a judge and judges’ chair for AAUW’s Grants and Fellowship division as well as a reviewer for Blackboard’s Exemplary Course competition. Harzewski received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania with a graduate certificate in women’s studies.
