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

It is very, very quiet in the English Building this week--the main office of the department will be open until tomorrow afternoon, but classes are suspended for the holiday and there are not many people roaming the halls. Let me take advantage of this quiet moment simply to wish everyone in our extended community a peaceful holiday season this year.
