Faculty in the English Department

“I write fiction because it's a way of making statements I can disown, and I write plays because dialogue is the most respectable way of contradicting myself.” –Tom Stoppard

Faculty in the English Department are a diverse and interesting group of people. The English faculty are skilled and knowledgeable teachers of reading, writing, and literature. They write and publish, travel, do research, present at conferences, and lead workshops. They support and encourage their students and enjoy teaching.
