About Us

Department of English

Body: 

Faculty

Faculty members in the Department engage in research and experience-led teaching.

  • We offer courses in Indigenous literatures and rhetorics, colonial and postcolonial studies, film and visual media, early modern drama and literature, creative writing, rhetorical studies and environmental communication, women’s writing, and critical theory.

  • Our popular electives include studies of children’s literature, detective fiction, hockey literature, and science fiction.

  • Our upper-level seminars draw on faculty research interests to explore topics such as contemporary health and environmental discourse, Indigenous poetics, trauma studies, early modern women writers, Shakespeare and food security, and the rhetoric of documentary filmmaking.

We offer two integrated BA options:

  • The English Literature (ELIT) option focuses on developing students’ abilities to read and write critically about a wide scope of literary texts, genres, and theories.
  • The English Rhetoric and Media Studies (ERMS) option focuses on developing students’ abilities to critique and craft written, oral, and visual compositions in multiple genres and media.
