Memorial's English Department has deep research roots in Canadian Studies. Strengths in poetry, drama, fiction and non-fiction from across Canada and across centuries create this active cluster. Faculty are engaged in literary and interdisciplinary projects that include the study of visuals, letters, and other documents in Canadian cultural history; the intersection of oral and written history; and comparative work focused on the intersections among literature, theatre, and film.
