The English Department Graduate Faculty is a large and diverse group of field nominated faculty with competence in a wide range of literary, theoretical, and cultural fields. Graduate faculty share an interest in graduate education and recognize the special responsibilities involved in the direction of graduate students. Members may serve as chair or minor subject member of any special committee in any subject of which they represent.
The Department of English maintains strong ties with Cornell programs in Africana Studies, Asian American Studies, Latino Studies, Native American Studies, Visual Culture, and Women’s Studies. In addition to the distinguished graduate faculty in such related departments as Comparative Literature, Romance Studies, German Studies, History, Philosophy, Theatre Arts, and Classics, many members of the English faculty are available to direct graduate work and to serve on Special Committees. The Graduate School provides a complete listing of English Department Graduate Faculty, their fields, and their approved concentrations along with a database searchable by faculty name or concentration.
