How long have you been at Mizzou?
I’ve been a faculty fellow with IDE since 2017. I’ve been at Mizzou since 2000.

Elisa Glick is the Founder of the Faculty Institute for Inclusive Teaching (FIIT), a cohort-based, cross-disciplinary program that builds faculty capacity for diversity and inclusiveness in the classroom. FIIT supports Mizzou faculty in developing multicultural competencies, navigating difficult dialogues, and implementing course-specific improvements designed to foster an inclusive learning environment and curriculum.

Glick teaches courses on sexual and gender diversity, LGBTQ+ literature and culture, feminist and queer theory, and twentieth-century literary and artistic culture. She has developed curriculum that addresses the cultures, histories, and experiences of LGBTQ+ people. Making her classroom a brave space for negotiating issues of difference, she teaches her students to open their minds and see the world in new ways, challenging them to be better people, thinkers, and citizens.

Glick regularly gives campus, regional, and national presentations on inclusive teaching, LGBTQ+, and social justice issues. She has published articles in Cultural Critique, Feminist Review, GLQ and Modern Fiction Studies. Her book, Materializing Queer Desire: Oscar Wilde to Andy Warhol (SUNY University Press, 2009), is a study of queer dandyism and its relation to the sphere of the commodity in modern literature and culture.
