Faculty

The Department of English faculty is internationally renowned for innovative research and teaching and explores pan-world expression of the English language and its literatures, which span the global yet connect directly to the local. Our active and engaged group of teachers, scholars, and students pursue research in a number of traditional disciplines—such as creative writing, education, film and media studies, linguistics, literature, and rhetoric and composition—and also conduct research and publish work on the cutting edge of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary fields—from border studies, digital humanities and material culture to literature and science, sustainability, and women’s studies.
