Elizabeth Hess has taught at Westmont since 2002, shuttling happily between the departments of English and Theatre Arts.  Teaching in two departments affords her an interdisciplinary view of the craft of literature, and allows for an exploration of texts as both lasting documents of culture and ephemeral moments of connection within community.  An alumna of Westmont, she has the distinction of having been on more Westmont England Semesters than any other person alive.
