Having garnered a laudable reputation in the field of Shakespearean literature, Dr. Kiefer has found success as a distinguished professor at the University of Arizona. Bearing considerable expertise in the Elizabethan and Jacobean dramas, he initially joined the faculty staff of the university in 1974 as a professor of English and advanced to his present role in 2014. Likewise involved in his field as an editor and reviewer of literature, Dr. Kiefer has also served as the editor of “Masculinities and Femininities in the Middle Ages and Renaissance,” which published in 2010, and as a reader for the University of South Carolina Press, Modern Philology, Renaissance Quarterly and Renaissance and Reformation, among many others.

Well regarded for his scholarly output, Dr. Kiefer has written a number of articles and reviews for various literary journals, including the Journal of English and Germanic Philology, Studies in Philology and the University of Toronto Quarterly, to name only a few. Moreover, he is the author of several books, including “English Drama from ‘Everyman’ to 1660: Performance and Print” and “Fortune and Elizabethan Tragedy.” Much sought after in the field as an expert resource, Dr. Kiefer has been invited to deliver presentations at several conferences and symposia.

Dr. Kiefer’s exemplary performance in the field was born of his academic journey, which began at Loyola College in Maryland, from which he attained a Bachelor of Arts in English in 1967. Following this accomplishment, he attended the prestigious Harvard University, where he earned a Master of Arts and a Doctor of Philosophy. To commemorate his subsequent accomplishments, Dr. Kiefer has received such accolades as a fellowship through the Huntington Library and recognition for the Best Book Submitted in the Field of Shakespeare Studies through the University of Delaware Press, among other awards. In accounting for his standout success, he credits his adherence to a strong work ethic and hopes to soon retire so he can reap the fruits of his labors.
