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.
The St Cross Building is the home of the English Faculty, the Law Faculty, the Bodleian Law Library, and the English Faculty Library, and is a Grade II* listed building.
Design and construction of the building took place between 1960 and 1964, so 2014 marks the building’s 50th anniversary!
The Rothermere American Institute have announced the news that Susan Barbour, Rebecca Roach and Nicole Sierra have been awarded prestigious postdoctoral positions following their graduate studies in American Literature at the Institute.
