Stephanie ChamberlainStephanie Chamberlain received her BA in English in 1982 from Weber State University (WSU), followed by a master’s degree in
English and a Ph.D from Purdue University. She is the daughter of Dr. Elmer H. Ericson, former WSU professor of English (b. 1926, d. 1980). She has generously supported WSU through the years with gifts to help endow the Elmer H. Ericson Scholarship in English and to help name the Dr. Elmer H. Ericson Classroom in Elizabeth Hall.
Stephanie’s commitment to education extends to Southeast Missouri State University (SMSU) where she is an English professor. There she has endowed the Dr. Robert W. Hamblin Lecture. She has served on various departmental and university committees, the Faculty Senate, and has sponsored the Sigma Tau Delta–the international English honorary society.
Stephanie teaches Shakespeare and early modern literature at SMSU. She is a consummate scholar and has published extensively, her work appearing in such publications as: The Upstart Crow, The Ben Jonson Journal, Explorations in Early Modern Culture, the Journal of the Wooden O Symposium, College Literature, and Weber Studies. She has published fourteen articles, twelve book reviews and made presentations at more than fifty national and international conferences.
Through her education, teaching, research, scholarship and charitable donations, Stephanie demonstrates a personal commitment to academic excellence. In appreciation, the Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities presented her with a 2012 AHA! Alumni award.
“I donate to higher education because it is a meaningful way of remembering the important people in one’s life that have passed,” said Stephanie. Donating to higher education has also proven a good way of supporting literary studies.”
