'Avocational Art': Read our latest newsletter

By

The new issue of Accents on English, the Department of English at Arizona State University's annual newsletter, is now live. Themed "Double Lives: Secret, Subversive, and Secondary Artistic Expression," contributor essays explore the ways English faculty, staff, students and alumni blend or supplement their academic and vocational passions with alternate artistic pursuits.

The results of these amalgamations are surprising, savory, and sometimes downright scintillating.

James Baldwin said that "The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions that have been concealed by the answers." We invite you to explore what has not been concealed but was happening just under the surface in the Department of English.
