English Department Faculty

In the Department of English, storytelling is our passion. We are a community of creative thinkers who love to read and learn from great stories and to add our own voices and narratives to existing traditions. Our faculty have expertise in British, American, and global Anglophone literature and culture, as well as in creative writing, professional writing, rhetoric and composition, and linguistics. We regularly publish scholarly monographs, edited volumes, creative works, translations, book chapters, and articles, as well as engage in public-facing and multi-modal projects. Much of our scholarship is interdisciplinary and social-justice oriented. We are united by a keen awareness of the power of language to help us understand, interpret, and share insights about the human condition.


History Department Faculty

Historians negotiate the dialogue between the past and the present. They analyze “primary” (first-hand) sources—including archival documents, published works, interviews, and material objects—to evaluate why and how the past matters. Members of the Department of History use a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to interpret the significance of earlier events, persons, and ideas for the world today. They research a variety of themes such as race, gender, transnational and intercultural encounters, war and empire, religion, and memory across Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas, from the premodern world to the twentieth century. The department is also known for its participation in public-facing work and its award-winning teachers. In these various roles, Marquette historians provide the context and research-informed perspectives that underpin civic dialogue on a range of society’s most pressing issues.
