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

Departmental teaching awards

Continuing on with the theme of departmental teaching excellence from my last post, please join me in congratulating the following people, who have won this year's English Department teaching awards for Graduate Student TAs and for non-tenure-track instructional staff. The process for determining these award winners begins with student nominations, so each of these teachers is to be congratulated not only on the award but for having made a real, positive impact upon the intellectual lives of their students.

Without further ado, congratulations to Michael Black, Ezra Claverie, Mark Dahlquist, Lisa Dunick, Mike Odom, and Amity Reading.

(Pssst: no hyperlinks to people who have never updated their page on the departmental website).
