Academic Profile: Professor Sally Shuttleworth
Professorial Fellow in English
I was educated at the Universities of York (BA) and Cambridge (PhD) before moving to the United States, to a Frank Knox Fellowship at Harvard University followed by a post as Assistant Professor in the English Department at Princeton University. I subsequently returned to England, teaching at the University of Leeds (intercut by a fellowship at the Society for Humanities, Cornell University) before taking up a Chair at the University of Sheffield in 1994. At Sheffield I served as Head of the School of English, as well as Dean of Arts, and was also Director and founder of the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies. In 2006 I moved to Oxford to take up the post of the Head of the Humanities Division, with responsibility for the 11 faculties and units which make up the Division of Humanities within the University. I stepped down from this role in 2011 to return to research and am currently running two large research projects.
