Department Chair: Angela Vietto

Are words really powerful? We believe they are. The discipline of English is large and diverse, encompassing both writing and critical analysis. The English department at EIU includes scholarship in literature, linguistics, rhetoric, and writing craft (analytic, argumentative, fiction, poetry, drama, and essays).
