Welcome to English at Oxford
The Faculty of English Language and Literature is by far the largest English Department in the UK, with over 75 permanent postholders, a further 70 Faculty members, 900 undergraduates and 300 postgraduates. The Faculty has a very distinguished research and teaching record, covering all periods of English Literature.
Indian Arrivals, Professor Elleke Boehmer's latest academic publication, has won a 2016 ESSE Book Award for Literatures in the English language. The awards were announced at the ESSE (The European Society for the Study of English) conference in Galway on 24 August 2016.
Mansfield College, Oxford
Stipendiary Lecturer in English (7 hours) I January - 30 June 2017.
The English Faculty is saddened to learn of the death of Geoffrey Hill. Geoffrey studied English at Keble College, and went on to a distinguished career at Leeds, Cambridge, and Boston. Keble College elected him an Honorary Fellow; and he was, of course, for five years our Professor of Poetry, a role he fulfilled with immense charisma and brilliance. He was unquestionably one of the great poets and literary thinkers of his age, inimitable and irreplaceable: it was a privilege to have him a member of our Faculty.
