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

Jill Hamilton Clements wins LAS teaching award

Just a quick note here to announce that Jill Hamilton Clements, a superb graduate student in our department who works in the sub-field of Medieval studies, has been named as a recipient of one of this year's LAS Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching by Graduate Teaching Assistants. 

 If memory serves, there have 2-3 such awards given out in previous years.  Since there are approximately 1,500 Teaching Assistants in LAS, winning one of them is a Big Deal.  

Congratulations, Jill!
