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

On This Side of the Sea

Philip Graham wrote the other day to tell me that his 2009 book The Moon, Come to Earth: Dispatches from Lisbon had just been reissued, in a Portuguese translation, as Do Lado de Cá do Mar (which, he tells me, translates back to English as On This Side of the Sea).

The fact that I am relying upon his translation tells you that I will probably be sticking to the English language edition. But you, my charming and multilingual reader, can find the Portuguese edition--via the website of its new publisher, Editorial Presença--here.
