English has become a complex discipline in the contemporary university and in today's society. In scholarship and teaching we engage such subjects as American and British Literatures & Cultures, Creative Writing, Critical Theory, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Film and Screen Studies. We also include new kinds of texts, including film, digital media, graphic novels, political manifestos, autobiography, and other forms of non-fictive prose. These changes to the discipline of English raise fundamental questions about what a “text” is, and have caused us to reexamine the nature of reading and writing. We welcome these developments, which have made our field increasingly complex, often contentious, and always lively

The Department of English at Syracuse University offers three graduate programs: a Master's degree of Fine Arts in creative writing, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in English. This page contains all scholarship submitted by students, faculty and staff in the department.
