Welcome to the Department of English

As we launch into another academic year, filled with both hope and uncertainty, we in the English department remain committed to fostering welcoming classrooms, respect for the dignity of our students, staff, and faculty, and an engaging community of research, teaching, scholarship, and creative achievement. UT’s undergraduate and graduate English classes are marked by the exchange of ideas and by an intimate process of learning. In our classrooms and through our research, we share our fascination with the history and production of great writing, participate in the exchange of ideas, and study the world-making contours of language itself.
