Illinois Department of English Blog


Welcome to the Department of English blog.

My name is Vicki Mahaffey and I took over as
head of the department on July 1, 2016. I'll be using this site to post updates and information of interest to our faculty, students, and alumni,
along with reflections about our discipline(s) in particular and the humanities in general. As anyone who has ever worked or studied here knows, the Department of English is a vibrant place. If you have something you'd like to see posted here, or if you want to contact me about the content of this blog, drop me an email at

And more!

I just received notification that our own Martha Althea Webber has received a 2008-09 Campus Award for Excellence in Public Engagement. As the notification letter from Chancellor Herman says, "this campus award is an important recognigtion of the extraordinary contributions of faculty, staff, and students to connect the University with the broader community on issues of critical social impact." Ms. Webber is one of two graduate student winners for the entire campus. So: hooray and congrats!
