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.
We are delighted to announce that Dr Lloyd Pratt has been appointed to the Drue Heinz Professorship of American Literature, and will take up his new post in July 2016.
A new Shakespeare First Folio has been discovered at Mount Stuart on the Isle of Bute. Emma Smith, Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Oxford University, has authenticated the First Folio as genuine, bringing the total of First Folios known to survive to 234.
