English is one of the largest and most diverse departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. Our faculty engage in American and British literary studies, non-fiction writing, film studies, linguistics, and imaginative writing. We administer the Writing Program, the Writing Center, and the Center for English as a Second Language. We contribute to the Committee on Social Theory and to the programs in Gender and Women’s Studies, Indian Culture, and Cognitive Science, among others. We offer classes on Shakespeare, film history, sociolinguistics, Victorian novels, critical theory, fiction writing—and many, many other subjects. Please take a moment and glance through the profile pages of the accomplished English faculty who pursue this scholarship, run these programs, and teach these classes.
