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 o […]
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.

In “The future of An Illusion”, many citizens are left to fend for themselves on a path of self-destruction. Freud believed that the most pivotal assets to having superior mental abilities can be attributed […]
One of the things that I have noticed in a lot of my fellow poet’s writing is that they include puns and wordplay. And I really like this but it has always been a hard thing for me to do. What is it that makes a […]
While perusing my poems again and beginning the revision process, I’ve realized that my poetry tends to be less thematic and more of a series of aurally pleasing sounds. I think that’s why, as a poet, I have a […]
Hey all. Thanksgiving Break is coming to a close, and it’ll be time to get back to the final grind to end this semester. Our rounds of workshop revisions will also be over, but we all know there’s more to come […]
From the Fishhouse came with a CD and I’ve been listening to it a lot lately. And I really like what some of the poets sound like when they read. Especially Kate Northrop when she reads her poem The Film because I […]
