There are lots of reasons to join us here. English @ SUNY Geneseo is a space where English majors and faculty can work together across different courses or across different sections of the same course. It’s also a platform for students and faculty sharing a particular interest — creative writing, say, or Irish Studies — to explore that interest together and publish some of their work to a wider public.
Course management systems typically keep blog and wiki conversation sequestered inside this course or that. But often students and faculty have something to say that’s relevant across courses — certainly across sections of the same course. The Reader and Text blog is for students in the English department’s gateway course in the major. It’s part of a larger site for bringing the students across all sections of […]
Well, maybe that’s going a little far. But we certainly hope English @ SUNY Geneseo will be a starting point for lively discussion about life, beauty, value, and other concerns that tie students and faculty together in the English major.
English @ SUNY Geneseo is an online community for SUNY Geneseo students, faculty, and staff in the English major and related programs.
We also welcome alumni, fellow-travelers from other Geneseo departments, and anyone collaborating with SUNY Geneseo English on a project.

The poetry exercise this week was about putting people in conversation with one another in a poem, and I started thinking about this concept in a more literal sense. When I was involved in slam, group pieces were […]
During our discussion in which we were to place the blame of the microbe epidemic on a specific character in Clay’s Ark, many of us pointed out Eli’s disastrous plan to keep the disease contained within a small […]
Considering that much of Clay’s Ark has been dealing with the infiltration of microbes into the biological systems of humans, I was slightly terrified when I happened upon this article that refers to the study of […]
A writer for Financial Times contends that our modern world is interestingly similar to the Middle Ages, dubbing the 21st century “neo-medieval.” Parag Khanna compares the United States to the Byzantium, while the […]
In class today, beginning with the two videos of the Mission Playground/District ‘clash’, my group focused on a discussion of an “invasive” technology and its powers. For example, the ‘intruding’ population was a […]
The Clay’s Ark virus transforms those afflicted in such a way that biologically, they are no longer human. Such a prospect is terrifying, especially because it results in absolute uncertainty and a lack of […]
To me, the idea of cannibalism seems to pervade Seed to Harvest—something that makes sense with the general theme of symbiosis which keeps coming back in Butler’s fiction. Multiple forms of cannibalism are created […]
