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 vmahaffe@illinois.edu.

Some campus awards for teaching and advising

I just received word that three of our English Department nominees have won campus-wide teaching awards.

*John Griswold, a Lecturer in our Creative Writing program, has been selected to receive the Campus Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching by a member of the Instructional Staff.

*Samantha Looker, a graduate student in Writing Studies, has been selected to receive the Campus Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching by a Teaching Assistant.

*And Bob Steltman--about whose many and varied contributions to the department I have already waxed enthusiastic on this blog--has been chosen for the Campus Award for Excellence in Advising Undergraduate Students.

These are big, eye-catching awards, awards representing teaching and advising work so exceptional as to stand out even at the campus level! Still more testimony to excellent teaching and advising we do around here.
