Our students, our field(s)
On Wednesday, English Department Faculty met to discuss the possibility of more integrated and consubstantial practices in teaching, scholarship/creative activity, and governance. Based on a common text, Bruce McCominsky's English Studies: An Introduction to the Discipline(s), faculty debated the connections among Literature and Literary Criticism, Linguistics and Discourse Analysis, English Education, Critical Theory and Cultural Studies, Creative Writing, and Rhetoric and Composition. More focused discussion will follow during the course of this academic year.
