Dear Alumni and Friends,

Welcome, or welcome back, to the Department of English!  We’re widely recognized as one of the leading English departments in the nation, long known for our innovative research and excellence in teaching.  Our department is always full of activity.  We announce some of our major news on our Facebook page, and we invite you to take a look and “like” us to keep current on the happenings of the department!

We look forward to staying in touch with you and we would be grateful if you could enter or update your contact information  so that we can contact you periodically via email with news about what is happening the Department. We’ve launched, for example, a series of lectures as part of our Forum on the Futures of Literary and Cultural Studies, in which we invite leading scholars to the department to speak on a variety of issues.  We also have other lectures and lecture series which provides our community with the opportunity to hear important talks by prominent scholars, authors, poets, and leaders from a wide array of backgrounds (including journalism, film & television, politics, etc…).  You can see a list of upcoming events by checking out our calendar of events.   We would welcome your attendance at all these events.

We also have a vibrant Friends of English organization.  Members enjoy many benefits, such as invitations to special events, the ability to audit courses, and the opportunity to become involved with faculty and students of the department.  For more information, you can follow the link to your left, or by clicking on this link.

If you have any comment on our website or would like to send us your news or get more involved with the department, please don’t hesitate to email us (This email address is being protected from spambots.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at our events!
