The Department of English at the University of Oklahoma

Join the OU Department of English where you can study environmental writing and Shakespeare, social media and Toni Morrison, creative writing and hip hop, Native American film and the Graphic novel. 

Our faculty teach in two broad areas:  literary and cultural studies and writing.  We wed the theoretical with the practical and creative, focusing on traditional literary study and on digital humanities, technical writing, film and media, and more. 

We ask questions about indigeneity, race and gender, sexualities, religion, economics, artistic forms and genres, techniques of writing, visual expression, and the global world we live in today.
