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

Web of Language

There is a nice story in today's News-Gazette about Dennis Baron and his Web of Language Blog. I get little notices all the time from the university news bureau about language-related national news stories in which Dennis has been quoted as a go-to expert, so it is nice that this time HE is the story.
