Our research creates knowledge about literature, poetics, writing, media, language, and cultures in the English-speaking world. Our faculty have been finalists for the Pulitzer Prize; have won Guggenheims, Fulbrights and Eisners; have earned multiple lifetime achievement awards; and have been awarded fellowships from the National Humanities Center, the Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies and the American Council of Learned Societies. We have the #1 Folklore program in the United States and the #1 Narrative Theory program anywhere.

All we’re missing is you.
