While the discipline has expanded in recent years to incorporate newly emerging media and new approaches to language and literature, the pedagogical and scholarly emphasis remains the close analysis of texts in their historical, critical, and cultural contexts and the teaching of writing in a wide variety of forms and in response to a variety of rhetorical situations. To this end, the department recognizes and will continue to respond to the international and cross-cultural importance of the English language, both as a means of communication in world affairs and as the literary voice of diverse peoples.
