Department of English

English Studies is a rapidly changing discipline that embraces a number of related fields, from British, U.S. and post-colonial literatures, to literary theory, cultural studies, cinema, electronic texts/media, creative writing and rhetoric. While its focus is increasingly interdisciplinary, English Studies takes as its principal pursuits textual analysis and production. Scholars of English Studies pay precise and sustained attention to language, literature, and culture in their historical, as well as theoretical, contexts; in their aesthetic, as well as practical, dimensions; and in their social, as well as political, significances.
