Elizabeth Jasper

Elizabeth Jasper is a poet, social justice advocate, journalist, historian, intuitive and all around tough old broad. Most of her social justice focus has been aimed toward abolition of the death penalty in the U.S. and around the world. With the advent of the Bush reign, she has begun to devote more of her efforts toward thwarting that scourge.

Her latest collection of poems, Standing Barefoot in the Death House Vestibule, is based on experiences in a long friendship with a death row inmate in Oklahoma that ended with her witnessing his execution. “Everyone should make time to attend an execution.” she says. “I guarantee an epiphany.” The book will be published later this year in conjunction with and sponsored by the website, “Death Row Speaks.” It will also be available on the site as a E-Book. She will edit a forthcoming book by federal death row inmate, David Paul Hammer, also the author of “The Final Escape,” and “Secrets Worth Dying For,” an account of his conversations with Timothy McVeigh shortly before McVeigh was executed.

She has spent a number of years working in international and diversity conscious programs on the Indiana University Bloomington campus. She has served as an administrative assistant and outreach coordinator in the India Studies Program, and as events coordinator in the Jewish Studies program. She joined the Latino Studies Program as an administrative and program assistant in the Fall of 2000. She is active in a number of Buddhist organizations aimed at cultural diversity and cultural preservation. She is author of the web site, "Latinos and the Death Penalty," and, since the death of her husband in mid-2001, has become webmaster of Digital History Ltd., home of "Gateway to the Past," a highly-acclaimed site on the Colonial period in North America. “I can also make a fully-boned corset for either a man or a woman, not that I am overburdened with requests.”

Elizabeth is also a gifted practitioner of Tarot and Natal and Horary Astrology.
