We live in a world of words, and a world where English is the world language. In the Discipline of English, we deal with this fact in two ways: first by studying literature written in English, and second by studying English in the workplace.
English has been taught at Flinders since the foundation of the university. Over the years the discipline has developed a strong reputation for teaching and research in literature in English (from Old English to Postcolonialism). This work continues, and you can find out about it by following the teaching and research links from the department's homepage (see sidebar to the right).
More recently, we have added a focus on the teaching of writing, both creative writing and writing for professional purposes.
