Passionate about Literature?

English teachers love to read, and most are called to the profession by a desire to share their passion.  However inherently pleasurable Englishand intellectually exciting the world of books may be, teaching English entails the development of several important skills necessary for effective communication. It is in their English classes that students learn how to read carefully and closely, write skillfully and stylishly, and argue analytically and critically, communication skills that are in increasingly high demand as our world grows smaller.  Teaching English means contributing to your students' deepening understanding of a language they already use and enhancing their appreciation for cultures they inhabit and will encounter in the future. 

The Brandeis English faculty currently have special interest in a number of areas including:

  • Women's Studies
  • Gender and Sexuality
  • Modernism
  • Anglophone Literature and Postcolonial Theory
  • Early Modern (especially Renaissance) English Literature
  • Literature and Science
  • Literary Theory and Philosophy
  • Contemporary Poetry
