After graduating from the University of Stuttgart with an M.A. and 1 st Teaching Certificate in English and History, in 1991, and working as a freelance English and German teacher in the Stuttgart area until 1995, Beate Kaebel went back to the U.S., where she had spent a year on a scholarship as a graduate student of English at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. In Savannah, Georgia, she worked, among other jobs, as a substitute teacher at local senior high schools and as an English tutor of senior high school students for the Royce Learning Center, for which she also designed, set up, and taught an EFL program for a diverse body of young adult international students at levels ranging from complete novice to fluent ESL speaker.
After returning to Germany in 2002, she began teaching English language practice for the English Linguistics Department at the University of Stuttgart as a freelance lecturer the following year; since 2009, she has been working as a salaried lecturer for the university’s literature departments, with courses primarily in language practice but also in literary studies. In the latter area, her fields of particular interest are African American, (U.S.) Southern, Southern African, West, and East African literatures, histories, and cultures.
