English studies involves the historical and analytical study of literatures and cultures produced in English throughout the world, as well as the study of critical and cultural theory. Combining long-standing commitments to traditional areas of English literary study, ranging from Medieval and Early Modern to a broad range of contemporary literatures and cultures, with expertise in interdisciplinary areas such as narratives of health, and literature/culture and the environment. Critical race studies, theories of gender and sexuality, and theories and literatures of decolonization and resistance also form core elements of these programs.
