Research that takes you anywhere

The Department of English’s faculty 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. They also conduct research and publish work in interdisciplinary fields, including border studies, digital humanities, material culture, sustainability and women’s studies.
