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

Not last...yet

Just so you know, today's post about Ted Sanders is not my last post here as Head.  Nor is this one my last.

But my term as Head of English officially ends on August 15, so the last one is coming up fast.  I'm sure that seems more momentous to you, dear reader, than to me.  But I've been posting here for several years (hundreds of posts, and tens of thousands of page-loads) so it seems momentous to me!
