Dr. habil. Gero Guttzeit currently teaches as Interim Professor of English Literature at the University of Freiburg, substituting for Professor Monika Fludernik.

Gero Guttzeit's work (Dr. phil. Giessen 2014; Dr. phil. habil. LMU 2024) is situated at the intersection of Modern British and American literary studies and guided by theoretical interests in authorship, concepts of character, and rhetoric. His first book on The Figures of Edgar Allan Poe: Authorship, Antebellum Literature, and Transatlantic Rhetoric came out in 2017 with DeGruyter. His second book manuscript deals with In/Visible Subjects: Literary Character and Modern Narratives of Invisibility, offering readings of authors from Eliza Haywood, Susanna Rowson, and Anna Letitia Barbauld to John Keats, James Forbes Dalton, Fitz-James O'Brien, and H.G. Wells, to G.K. Chesterton, Virginia Woolf, Ralph Ellison, China Miéville, and Jennifer Egan. He has taught at universities in Germany, Belgium, and the US. He guest-edited several special issues, contributed to a number of edited collections, and his articles have appeared in such venues as Forum for Modern Language Studies, Scholarly Editing, Journal for the Study of British Cultures, Anglistik, and Zeitschrift für Anglistik und Amerikanistik.
