English

The IU Southeast English Department helps students develop the analytic and communication skills they need to compete in the evolving world market of critical ideas.

Our dedicated department is large enough to offer Literature and Writing courses on a broad range of topics, but still small enough for students to make personal connections with their peers and professors. Recent courses have included:

  • Western World Masterpieces
  • Medieval English Literature in Translation
  • American Film Culture
  • Writing in the Arts and Sciences
  • Critical Practices
  • Writing for the Web
  • Poetry, Fiction, and Nonfiction writing

We take pride in our teaching, and our commitment to classroom excellence ensures that students engage in lively, thoughtful, and rigorous scholarship.

Check out our Resources and Opportunities for English Students, which include the English Club, the IU Southeast Writing Contest, the IU Southeast Review, Creative Writing Library Resources and many others on this Web page. The English Program is also on Facebook.

Students also have opportunities to publish their own work and gain experience in fields of writing and publishing by joining the staff of the IU Southeast Review, the IU Southeast Undergraduate Research Journal, or the Voice, the Magazine of the School of Arts and Letters.

INTRODUCING A NEW COURSE for English majors!

L356 — American Poetry to 1900 
Starting in the Fall of 2017. Where would modern American Poetry be without Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman? These two stars of the 19th century influenced just about any poet you can name in the 20th and 21st centuries! In addition there's Anne Bradstreet, Phyllis Wheatley, Edgar Allen Poe, Herman Melville, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and the incomparable Edward Taylor. Taught by Dr. Jack Ramey, a published poet himself and a spoken word artist. Do not miss this opportunity to study, and fall in love with the roots of our poetic heritage!
