Medieval and Early Modern

The English Department has long been committed to teaching and research in the field of medieval and early modern studies, and our faculty members' wide-ranging professional interests in English literature and culture from the ninth through the seventeenth centuries cross disciplinary boundaries. Departmental research strengths include Anglo-Saxon literature, Middle English literature, manuscript studies, secular and religious poetry, non-fiction, religious drama and drama of the public playhouses, Chaucer, Shakespeare, civic and royal pageantry, early modern print culture, and the literature of the English Reformation.
