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.

As the end of the semester draws near, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about this class. I remember when I signed up, I was so excited to have a reason to write poetry: finally, something to keep me accountable […]
Recent Medieval combat has become a form of mixed martial arts in Russia. This article talks about the M-1 series of MMA in Russia. This new series is where two men enter the ring dressed entirely in chainmail […]
It was my brother who got me interested in writing. He’s always been an insatiable reader and as kid I would always follow his example and build on it, so I started reading everything he was finished with. It’s […]
During our class discussion on Friday, the benefits and drawbacks to Lauren’s hyper-empathy syndrome were brought into consideration, along with the fact that it is the world she operates within that consequently […]
Since everyone is doubtless beginning the scramble to finish their annotated bibliographies, I thought I would take a moment to blog about Nanda’s article “Power, Politics, and Domestic Desire in Octavia Butler’s […]
Something I have always wanted to try is to write a poem with the poetic statement in mind. (I guess this means first I have to fully form the poetic statement that I have in mind.) I think that knowing where I’m […]
