Literary Studies in the Department of English, Faculty of Arts

Studying the language in which we live—and its uses, from poetry to politics to the hidden metaphors of everyday life—offers a strong centre from which to explore the world within and beyond the university. Students in this program have opportunities for creativity and intellectual challenge, through broad and intensive reading, through writing, and through discussion with professors and fellow students. This is a program for students who cannot be satisfied by textbook learning: it demands, develops, and rewards intellectual curiosity, articulate speech and writing, and critical thinking. 


English faculty members present their research at the 2015 Children's Literature Association Conference.

Initial planning underway as University of Calgary prepares to host ‘Olympics’ of humanities and social sciences research.

Course descriptions for Spring 2015 term now available.

2015-2016 Undergraduate Topics Course descriptions are available online.

Important Information for Prospective English Graduate Students.

Department of English publications by Karen Bourrier, Bart Beaty, David Sigler, and more.
