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

Deb Stauffer wins LAS Staff Award!

Rob Barrett--the department's Associate Head and the person who compiles our nomination packets for LAS awards--tells me that he's learned that Deb Stauffer will win one of this year's LAS Staff awards. This is terrific news and well-deserved: congratulations, Deb! If you've had any contact at all with the main office of the English Department in recent years, the chances are good that Deb helped you out or pointed you in just the right direction. We all owe her our thanks for helping make sure that things run smoothly in the main office.
